intel wireless 3945 card and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3


I'm a linux newbie and I'm trying to get my intel wireless 3945 card working in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. On startup I get the message "iwl3945 device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization." Here is some relevant information:

[root@localhost /]# lspci | grep 3945

[root@localhost /]# uname -r

[root@localhost /]# ifup eth1

Save yourself a ton of headaches and move to a more current version. RHEL3 is on the tail end of it's support life (not sure when it will hit EOL). Newer versions (RHEL5.2) will support a lot of hardware out of the box. I hope you realize that RHEL is not a free product, it requires you to pay for support and updates. Assuming you are not interested in paid support, have a look at Centos. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download/update and is binary compatible with RHEL(made from same source code).
