I figured that out late that night (early that morning?). I installed
the centosplus kernel, and then I had to find an iwl3945-firmware
package, otherwise the driver wouldn't work. I put it in my own repo:
Suggestion: it would be a good idea to include this firmware package in
the centosplus repo. This would spare some hassle.
Right now I'm running three different wireless cards on CentOS: Intel
Pro 3945, Broadcom 4306 and Ralink 2561. Configuring each one of these
reminded me of jumping through a series of burning loops.
