      I think you've mistaken my answerring a question for
      someone elses request :P ... Mine is a 600m, 725
      (1.6GHz), yada-yada ... And Slackware 10.0 and up
      comes prebuilt to work with 2.6.x, I didn't have to
      install anything extra but the newer kernel, ATI
      drivers, and ipw2200 driver. ALSA works with the
      recompile...

      And not to be an jerk, but 10-12 minutes doesn't seem
      very fast ... I mean, I haven't actually timed a
      compile since 2.4.something on my dual-Xeon (90
      seconds is fast ;) ... but it doesn't seem like it
      takes that long ... I'd say 15 minutes including
      config time and rebooting into XP to keep my dual-boot
      happy. ...

        well...
        now when I restart linux, my wireless card is not detected. I
        actually sent that last message from a wireless connection, so what
        is going on? When linux(FC3) is booting an error comes up saying
        the hardware associated with ipw2200 is not detected, delaying
        something...

        Anyone know what I am doing wrong? Why did it work and now it
        doesn't? Do I need to do something during boot up so that it
        detects?
        Thanks,
        Ryann

          The temporary fix to this is to unload:
          % . unload
          Then reload the driver
          % . load

          For some reason there is an issue with the firmware and the driver
          communicating.
          Hope this helps someone else.
          Cheers,
          Ryan
