please post the output of iwconfig
What do you want to do with your wireless? Connect to a router?
if that is what you want to do, then do that :
iwconfig eth1 essid YOUR_SSID
dhclient eth1
That is, if your interface is named eth1 (see the output of iwconfig)
To scan for networks, do that :
iwlist eth1 scan

Hello sinisterman

I don't know how far back support goes for your Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG card, by by repute it works out of the box for Fedora 7 and later.

As Fedora 6 has now reached the end of its life as far as security updates go is there any chance you could get hold of an updated version to work from?
