Intel 3B 2100 minipci not working in OpenSuse10.1

Hi, I new to the forums
I just installed OpenSuse 10.1 on my T40 thinkpad, but the built-in Intel 3B 2100 wireless card isn't starting properly

the /var/log/boot.msg reports:

<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_get_encodeext
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_set_encode
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_get_encode
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_txb_free
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_set_encodeext
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_get_scan
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_set_geo
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_rx
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol ieee80211_rx_mgt
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol free_ieee80211
<4>ipw2100: Unknown symbol alloc_ieee80211

Before, the driver, 80211 subsystem, and firmware were showing up in lsmod, but now they arnt for some reason, either way it didn't work tho.

The only place I see the card listed, it under yast. everything looks ok, but the card never shows up in ifconfig no matter what I do.

Can anyone help?

Much appreciated!
