Hi GeneW,

I'm sorry to hear it.  Do you have /etc/kernel-img.conf that looks like
mine ?

do_symlinks = yes
 relative_links = yes
 do_bootloader = yes
 do_bootfloppy = no
 do_initrd = yes
 link_in_boot = no
 ramdisk = /usr/sbin/update-initramfs

If update-initramfs is being called with the patch applied then it
should add the firmware.

On the other hand there could well be more than one problem here ...
I see the initramfs-tools package has just been re-issued but this fix is still not applied.  But - I now have working ipw2200 even though this patch is not included in it.  And I've had no "firmware error, restarting" messages recently (last five days). Has something else changed concerning module firmware behaviour I wonder ?

I think it's safe to say that "Hardy 8.04 LTS" means "long term support"
not necessarily "long term stability" :-)
