taken from ipw2200's website:

In order to use the IPW2200 driver you will need the following:

1. Linux (of course) with a 2.6.8+ kernel. See README.ipw2200 for information on specific options required to be enabled in the kernel.
2. Wireless Extensions (v17) and Tools (v28)
3. The IPW2200 driver.
4. The IPW2200 binary firmware image.
