    ISSUES with ipw2100 wireless drivers & Fedora Core 2


    *****PLEASE HELP!!!!****
    Hey guys I'm a NEWBIE, and I really need help with this. I'm trying to get my wireless to work on my IBM T-40 and it's got the Intel Pro Wireless 2100. So I went to Sourceforge and got the ipw2100 driver to see if it will work, but I can't even get it installed right, it seems. I'm running on a 2.6.5-1.358 kernel (if that makes a difference), and here's what happens:
    when I try to 'make' the package (after untarring it & all),I get these errors. can ANYONE tell me what I'm doing wrong? I know it's a lot to look at, but ANY help on this would be greatly appreciated... THANK YOU!

    did you run the configure script?
    Code:
    ./configure

    I tried to run that, but it doesn't seem to work. Output as follows:

    bash: ./configure: No such file or directory


    ...and I'm in the directory where everything is at. I ran ls -la in it and the output is as follows:

    THEN I even brought up the README again to see if there was anything I missed that might give me a clue as to how to get throught this, or what I might be doing wrong, but that didn't do much for me... any clues?
