all it really means that some of the newer commands won't be available, iirc iwlist command only happened recently. But commands such as iwconfig wlan0 xxxx still will work.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

im pretty shure that wireless extensions are a part of the kernel but is this that the wireless tools arent taking adveatage of all of 'wireless extensions 18' 's capabilities yet?

it is not in the kernel, but rather in the wireless tools package. I met that error in Mandrake 10.1 and SuSE 9.2, but as soon as I installed a newer version (of wireless tools), the error disappeared.
As you said, it just means that the wireless tools package installed cant take advantage of wireless extensions capabilities. Theres nothing wrong with running an older wireless tools package, but since I don't like seeing error or warning messages, I upgraded.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
