Will do so when at home, though.

Tested this. It works, _if_ you set the AP address first, otherwise it bails out with 'Fatal interrupt'.

So you're doing something like:

# modprobe ipw2100
# iwconfig eth1 ap 00:0d:88:28:2e:91
# ifconfig eth1 up

and if you skip the iwconfig step you see the fatal interrupt?
