    SubjectRe: ipw2100: firmware problem

    I'd like to chime in here and say that from my point of view, not
    enabling the wireless network adaptor until asked by userspace is the
    way to go.

    It reduces power requirements, and it pushes the configuration details
    out to userspace, where they can be handled according to the policy
    setup by the distro/user.

    Having my latop bootup and turn on the wireless card and join an AP
    without my explicity asking is a bad thing to have happen.
