RHEL4 AS trying to get ipw2200bg working


I have a dell d600 centrino that I'm trying to get the wireless network working. When I boot the
system up dmesg shows this
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth1
ipw2200: ipw2200_boot.fw load failed
ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: 0xFFFFFFFE
divert: freeing divert_blk for eth1
ipw2200: failed to register network device
ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:03.0 failed with error -5
the kernel is 2.6.9-5.EL
I read the thread about Easy intel wireless install . I could not find any rpms for 2.6.9-5.
Has anyone got this working with RHEL4 AS or does anyone know where I can get the rpms for RHEL4

The message is fairly self exlaining: Unable to load firmware, so download and install it.

Thanks for the reply. I wasn't able to get any of those to work. But I found a copy of
the firmware on the extras cd ipw2200-firmware-2.0-3 and that works . Thanks
