Thanks Pedro,

I was asking because someone told me that I didn't need to use it with the 0.55
driver. Yes I did patch wpa_supplicant with the ipw2100 patch and I downloaded
the script last night and am going to try and set it up after this email. :)

I also have joined the ipw2100 mailing list because I joined this one by mistake
and was told my questions would be better suited for the ipw2100 list.

But....I want to thank you and Alejandro for at least answering my questions
even though I should be asking on the other list. Thanks Guys!

Jon
