Now... I installed KWirelessMonitor... the graphics come up & such 
fine... but it can't seem to connect to device pff0... now... funny 
thing is--the card's in, it's working... but there's no /dev/pff0

My gut says there *should be* a /dev/pff0--right?

How do I make this happen.. I've tried adding:

perm   pff0   0644

To /etc/devfs.conf to (no surprise really) no avail. I'm running 
5.3-STABLE [RC1 cvsup'd]. I'm kind of new at adding device drivers & 
such, so I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong (or even *if* I'm 
doing something wrong....)

Any help is, as always, greatly appreciated.
