ipw2200, take 2

So it turns out my previous ipw2200 card was a dud. drheld put the sucker in his laptop and it was just as crappy there.

I got a new one today, and it's working fine. So no more ndiswrapper for me! Although I understand the bcm43xx people are making good progress; jdeboer seems to have it working on is iBook. It's a heroic effort, and I'm sure many, many people will thank them for it. I still don't want to use crappy hardware made by a crappy company that won't release specs, though...

(Says he who currently runs an nVidia desktop machine; at least in their case the hardware is generally good, just no specs... *sigh* In related news, I'm interviewing with them tomorrow, for the Linux driver team, so maybe I'll get a chance to bug them first-hand!)
