    O.K. The driver help recommended turning on debug for first time usage
    and I was surprised when I didn't get any debug output. And I see now
    that /proc/bus/pci/drivers/iwl3945/debug_level *is* writable. I'm lost in a
    twisty maze of /sys directories, all subtlely different.

    The driver itself works fine, but I'm having trouble getting decent speed out
    of it, similar to the horrible performance I had under another operating
    system, not quite as bad but still worse than a MacBook Pro. Any clues on what
    I can look for to see why it so relatively slow? I'm going to put it to the WoW
    test as soon as I can get a modern userland & Wine on the machine, it's running
    RHEL 4 now. The machine is a Lenovo T60.
