Yes, the airport.c file was there, even before the Airport showed up in
Config.in, so yes, that kinda confuses me also. Since it's in the newest stuff
from linux-pmac-devel, maybe Paulus was moving/merging files into the
2.4.3test tree, and that is why they didn't show up.

You don't have to tell me, I'm counting my lucky stars right about
now...trying to get the memory now would have be useless, the budget bean
counters are out doing their job in full force. I figure the G4 Titanium is
out of the question right now...;-) If the product ships soon and the bean
counters are still estatic over it, we'll try and get the TiPB in the order

the lid, it gets hotter than a well digger's @$$, when I open it, it seems
like you can fry and egg on the palm rest areas on each side of the
trackpad...In comparison to the Intel laptops that come pre-packaged with a
walk-in freezer pack on the CPUs, the PowerBooks seem to run very cool most of
the time (with the exception of the lid being closed when the machine is

After I get my airport module, I think I need to add my network wireless
