FC2 not recognizing the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG wireless card

Did successfully instal fresh installation of FC2 (4 disks) on my laptop sony (PCG-Z1WA) and everything works great. But when I try to configure the built-in wireless network card (Intel pro2200 BG) linux doesn't recognize the device. I could see the device when I did "lspci -tv".

Can anyone help me configure the wireless?

ndiswrapper is probably a better choice for you - it seems to work flawlessly for everyone I've talked to. Yeah, I'm too lazy to go find the link... so here you go:
