Hi ppl

I am running FreeBSD 5.2.1 RELEASE
on IBM ThinkPad R40 (Centrino) laptop.

Is it possible to use my builtin 
wireless support with this system?

I cvsupped to CURRENT but i am not very 
familiar with FreeBSD's base codes. So i 
cvsupped again to 5.2.1 RELEASE.


After cvsupping to CURRENT (27 April) i
followed this steps.

# cd /sys/modules/ndis
# make; make install


# cd ../if_ndis
# ndiscvt -i inf.inf -s sys.sys -o ndis_driver_data.h
# make; make install


# kldload ndis
# kldload if_ndis

and then

# ifconfig ndis0 up

but this locked my system completely.

Thank you.
