      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
