In order to have WIFI on my Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11b/g wireless laptop card I was informed I should install ipw2200 ( http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_Gentoo_on_Fujitsu-Siemens_S7020#Onboard_Wireless ) and now after I upgraded my kernel I was advised to reinstall modules. Trying to reinstall ipw2200 it says I should disable IEEE80211 but qconf doesn't allow me to disable it. My questions.

1. Shouldn't it all be kernel drivers?

2. How can I identify which driver conflicts my desire to disable the above option?

3. Eventually I will have to re-enable those options because I also need to enable encryption or am I entirely wrong here?

4. Is there a way in qconf to search where a given kernel option is set in the menu (too many times I get a kernel option documented and now go figure which qconf tree to dive into.
