Simple WiFi Question


Alright I have a real quick wifi question for Fedora Core 3

I have the wifi working
Acomplished this by entering
Code:
[root@localhost aeuzent]# /sbin/iwconfig eth1 key ##########################
[root@localhost aeuzent]# /sbin/dhclient eth1
My problem is I can't get it to work on boot

Here's my ifcfg-eth1 file
Code:
DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
KEY=##############################
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no

Run
system-config-network
and under network configuration>general tab check both the first and second boxes to get any user to initalise the device and to activate it on boot. This should sort it.
Regards
Chris
