Indeed that was it, thanks.. I suppose I should have noticed that error 
about ieee80211_crypt_tkip failing to load :-)

I think I will report that as a bug to the ipw2200/ieee80211 people 
though.. the "make install" for those should handle the case where there 
are already modules in /lib/modules. It seems that if you do "make 
install" it does nothing in that case. I had to copy the modules in 
manually but I must have messed something up the first time..
