ipw2200 probs on dell inspiron/ubuntu 5.10


i have a dell inspiron 9300 which includes an intel 2200. i put ubuntu 5.10 on there. it didn't see the wireless card. only networking devices were lo, eth0 and sit0.

this is what i've done so far:
I downloaded the latest ipw2200-fw: 2.3, ieee80211: 1.1.6 package, and ipw2200 package: 1.0.8
uncompressed each archive.
copied firmware files (.fw) to 'usr/lib/hotplug/firmware'
ran' make', then 'sudo make install' on ieee80211 and ipw2200.
compiled without errors. the ipw2200 install concluded by reminding me to put firmware files in the 'usr/lib/hotplug/firmware' directory. i'm assuming that's normal.)

when i try 'sudo modprobe ipw2200' i get this:


bosque00@charlotte:~/Desktop/ieee80211-1.1.6$ sudo modprobe ipw2200
FATAL: Error inserting ipw2200 (/lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)



dmesg output (pertaining to relevant modules, full dmesg in next post):

the problem seemed to be with some files from the older version of the 80211 hanging around. after enough locates and make cleans it loads.

--

now i can get the modules to load (ipw2200 and as a result ipw2200 and the firmware), but it still doesn't see any wireless hardware. i only get eth0.

the 2200 is invisible. but works fine if i boot in windows.

dmesg contains this clue:

bosque00@charlotte:~$ dmesg | grep ieee8

bosque00@charlotte:~$ dmesg | grep ipw
