It's probably a very a good idea to create a /lib/firmware folder, and place
firmware there.  /lib/hotplug/firmware is deprecated as far as I know, and I
am not even sure it works right in Etch and Sid.

This is version 3.0.  The driver you have probably wants v2.4.  It is a good
idea to install both versions of the firmware to avoid these issues.

ipw2100 firmware is useless for your card.
