fc4 wireless connection problems
I have some knowledge of linux - but I'm certainly no genious as my troubles have proved to me. I have tried every which way I can to install my wireless card and I cannot make it work.
I'm on fc4 gnome desktop with Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG (rev 05)
I have attempted to install wirelessassistant with an rpm, but it failed, I have tried to install gwireles, it insists I am missing a gnome-keyring-1 package, which I have subsequently failed to install. I have also tried to install an ndiswrapper, first off I am not sure if it installed properly and secondly I cannot seem to get hold of .inf and .sys files for my wireless, which I have at least found out is compatable with Linux.
Is there any help anyone could lend to me? Do you need more info from me too?

Thanks for the assistance. I'm on my work laptop and so don't like to go changing major things like the version of the OS - the IT guy will kill me if I bugger it all up and if something goes wrong my work will be in shambles for more time than I can afford so I'm going to soldier on with FC4 for the next 12 months.
I have made some headway I think, I can get:
FATAL: Error inserting ipw2200 (/lib/modules/2.6.14-1.1656_FC4/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
dmesg | grep ipw
ipw2200: disagrees about version of symbol ieee80211_wx_set_encode
ipw2200: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_set_encode
ipw2200: disagrees about version of symbol ieee80211_wx_get_encode

ipw2200: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wx_get_scan
ipw2200: disagrees about version of symbol ieee80211_rx
ipw2200: Unknown symbol ieee80211_rx
this continues for all files, but I didn't want to cluter up the thread showing them all. I hadf thought I had got ieee80211 working, but the above suggests otherwise
I've tried following the instructions in the page you put me on to, but it gets a little fundamental (if that's the right word) for my Linux understanding. I got lost and confused.
Are there any further suggestrions? Or am I a lost cause?
