      1.- Get the driver. I took ipw2100-0.40-pre.tgz

      2.- Uncompress it

      3.- Read INSTALL file

      4-99.- Wollow instructions in this file.

      They are much better than any step-by-step that I could give.

      Only one hint. There are two ways: pach and compile the kernel or
      compile just a module. I used the last one as I found it simpler.
      To do this, you need the 'full' driver, the one of ~750kb. The smaller
      (~95kb) is just the patch.

      Any way, you need the sources or, at least, the headers of your kernel
      (package kernel-headers- or something so)
