Help needed for Intel PRO/Wireless 2100

Looking for some help from anyone who has gotten the Intel PRO/Wireless
2100 card working to establish a wireless internet connection. Per the
document in file://usr/share/doc/packages/wireless-tools/README.firmware
I downloaded the file and installed per the instructions
(although I'm still not sure that's the right file). The card is
detected by YAST, but I'm unable to get a connection though it with any
known good WAPs. If I try 'ping -I eth1' I get 'connect: No
such device'.

The laptop I'm using is a Dell Latitude D600. I'm more than happy to
provide any addtional information.

it is found in those to whom it has not yet occurred
that they, too, might be admired some day.
