updating wireless drivers ipw2100


I have an IBM laptop and im running slackware 10.1 reading through some sarches and other posts I have actually got my ethernet card going and all set up on eth0.
I would like to get my wireless card running on eth1

here is the report from the "lspci"

I checked around and found other people with some issues and decided to get the
latest drivers for the pro/wireless 2100 card.
how do i go about getting them installed......
i read on sorceforge.net something about the kernel modules need to be redone.
also about ipw-tools?
can someone help?

thank you
nate

refining the request

i am running slackware 10.1 kernel 2.4.29
how do i get my wireless card set-up on eth1?
when i do iwconfig i get "no wireless extensions"
i've tried dmesg | grep eth1(at the console prompt) and still get nothing. it looks as though its not even there
any help would be appreciated.
thank you
