You can get the ipw2100 driver working in planet, but part of the ipw2100
driver depends on the kernel, so you have to build it especially for the
planet kernel. I tried to do this via the src RPMs but I had no idea what
I was doing and failed horribly :)

In the end I built the latest ipw2100 driver from source, after
installing the planet kernel source, it went OK, but for some reason I
have to rmmod ipw2100; modprobe ipw2100 after I boot. No idea why.

Hopefully the ipw2100 driver will make it into the main kernel at some

Ah, I hadn't noticed but when I installed planet core it removed my ATRPMs
alsa stuff. Oh well :)

You could try adding "^kernel-module-alsa" to the Allow-Duplicated bit of
your /etc/apt/apt.conf, but its just a guess.
