I know I have seen the IPW2200 module in the kernel config. I have a DELL Inspiron 6000 and I have not been able to use my DVD player to watch movies because I cannot enable DMA due to an issue with SATA pass-through. I believe I heard that this issue has been fixed with the new 2.6.15 kernel and also that the IPW2200 driver is a newer one.
I have been looking through the gconfig menu and I cannot find the option to compile the IPW2200 kernel. Could someone give me an idea where it is? I even tried "less .config | grep IPW" and "less .config | grep 2200" but niether gave me any results.
Also, to enable the SATA pass-through support, do I need to compile another option or kernel or is this something that is included in the new version of the libata module?
