Umm? What's the problem?

Linux tc 2.4.22-1.2149.nptl.prism54 #1 Sat Jan 10 20:17:38 EET 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I just dropped the prism54-patch in, rediffed and build the kernel SRPM
again.

That doesn't work with the automatic network config tho. The prism
driver is not happy if networking tries to treat it as 'Wireless'.
Should update the wireless-tools too tho.

Just loading the driver and ifconfig it manually and it's working.
Should really peek what is actually wrong with it as on debian it's
working 'out of the box', but then again it's just my tabletPC which
is used just to watch movies and it's powered all the time anyway ....
