Do I need iwlagn module for Lenovo T400?

I have the Lenovo T400 which I understand requires the iwlagn.ko module (for the intel 5100 wireless card).

I need this driver installed for Backtrack 3 (kernel

I found this page

I did install the microcode into /lib/firmware, and the mac80211 subsystem.

Not sure which driver to compile, I downloaded iwlwifi-1.2.25.tgz

However, after compiling I do not see iwlagn.ko or iwlwifi.ko. It only created iwl3945.ko and iwl4965.ko

dont I need iwlwifi.ko or iwlagn.ko or iwl5100.ko ?

for my iwl4965, the only thing I ever install is the firmware. The actual driver seems to come with most distros----have you looked with the package manager?

What does the Intel site say about the 5100?
