After a bit more playing with my upgraded laptop, I found that not all my FC2 packages were upgraded. I tried opening OpenOffice Writer and found that it wouldn’t start.

I popped the freshly burnt DVD into my laptop ( an IBM Thinkpad T40 ) and upgraded an existing Fedora Core 2 installation. The installation ran longer than I hoped it [...]

This turned out to be pretty easy. I installed the RPMs from ATRpms for the hostap and ipw2100 kernel modules.Initially, I couldn’t load the modules without rebooting the laptop. Upon reboot, the Centrino was recognized by Kudzu. I logged in and my Centrino chip was connected to the closest AP with DHCP.I love it!
