> I have an "older" laptop that is using the Intel 2200 wireless

> fine.  When I was reviewing my kickstart setups I found that the ipw2200
> firmware package is no longer available in RPMForge.  The CentOS site's
> how-to page for this interface still refers to RPMForge, so that now
> seems out of date.
> What happened to the Intel firmware packages on RPMForge and where else
> should I be looking for them ?  I tried ELRepo and didn't see them
> there.
> Suggestions and pointers are welcome, and thanks in advance.
