I've gotten the wireless interface on a Thinkpad R52 working from the
instructions in the FreeBSD Handbook:
Unfortunately, I seem to have run into a problem.  Most of the time, the
interface that will be used is the RJ-45 ethernet NIC, not the IPW2200
wireless NIC.  I've yet to find a way to get the wireless to work
without starting it at boot time.  How would I go about configuring the
system so that it doesn't start fwe0 at boot, but allows me to start it
(easily) later if I need it?
