turning off wireless on a plane


Hi,
Anybody know how to turn off a built-in wireless card (centrino mini pci) before getting on a plane? I am running Slackware on an IBM thinkpad R-40 with kernel 2.6.8 without module unloading enabled.
Thanks,
-geomatt

There's probably a BIOS setting as well as a key combo such as Fn-F2 that can be used to disable the card.
