Journal amper's Journal: Fedora Core 4 on ThinkPad T30 w/ WPA-PSK 802.11b

Well, I spent the day installing Fedora Core 4 on a borrowed IBM ThinkPad T30 (2366-96U). Also managed to update the firmware on a Prism chipset-based Siemens/Speedstream SS1021 card to v1.1.1 primary and v1.8.2 secondary using the Host AP package (which requires later firmware than what I had to run WPA), and got everything connected to my WPA network. Pretty cool. I'm typing this from the ThinkPad right now.

At least I finally found a use for the old Speedstream card which didn't work with WPA under Windows XP...
