Unhappy Intel Pro Wireless Card Configuration with Mandriva LE2005 on Inspiron 6000

hey folks,
PS accept my apologies , as this is a repost. My previous post "IPW2200 problem with inspiron 6000" did not get any replies. So i thought i could re-phrase and repost. Thanks for your patience.

My DELL Inspiron 6000 has the Intel Pro Wireless 2915 abg card in it. And i am dual booting it with Windows XP Home and Mandriva LE2005. I installed IPW2200 driver and the hotkey fw files. When i run iwconfig , i could see the wireless network information, but when i "connect wifi" from Mandrake Control Center, i get the following error.
kid exited -1 at /usr/lib/libDrakX/ line 153

and when i press connect button in the wireless network controls i get this message

output in file /etc/waproamd/scripts/ failed : Is a directory
Sorry again for reposting. Please help me out !

Thanks in advance
