hy all.

i just add finish up setting my new airport card bellow my kbd and the kernel boot
up recognizing the new "eth1". I'm using the benh tree (2.4.21-benh2) and its iBook2
configurations with minor changes to adjust to gentoo-sources, and all the suport
needed by the kernel is set. 

Start dig in for airport configuration under gentoo and linux in genral i found a nice
doc unfortunaly not aplied to our distro! Please can someone give me some highlights on
how to adjust this following setting in gentoo configuration files ?

thanks in advanced!
