FC4 wireless problem with IBM T40

Linux FC4 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 installed on IBM T40 Laptop.

There are two Network devices
" Inter Corporation 82540EP Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Mobile)"
Device: /dev/eth0, Driver: e1000 , this one works great with cable.

the other one is " Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter",
Device : /dev/eth1 Driver: iwp2100;

when I am trying to Active the wireless Devices, system says "Cannot activate network device eth1! iwp2100 device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."

what's the problems?
Thanks a lot!

You'll need to install the ipw2100 driver from and follow through their instructions for setting up the interface. Should work fine though, but your system won't have the correct module available to run the device without some extra help
