Trouble with wireless network card - Debian pendrivelinux.


Hey everyone! I've been playing around with Pendrive Linux (which is based on Debian), and have been trying to get my wireless network card to work (which is an intel pro/Wireless 3945ABG). I believe I have downloaded and installed the card correctly, but when I go to the network manager applet in Gnome its not showing up (nor is the card showing up when I go to administration/networking).

lspci:

0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02).

ifconfig -a
