This patch is different from the previous one. This is for IPW2200. ;-)

It updates the information/README to match the Kconfig info of the IPW2200.

Please apply to have a better documented 2.6.14

I dunno if this is either handled by Netdev or LKML because is about

+As the firmware is licensed under a restricted use license, it can not be

+You can obtain these images from <http://ipw2200.sf.net/firmware.php>.
+The firmware package should be extracted where your hotplug firmware agent

+% grep FIRMWARE /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent
+The most common path is /lib/firmware but the firmware.agent will tell.
