The wifi driver has been added later, is not available for stock lenny:
The wired card should use "sky2" module, not sure if it was included
under lenny :-?
A side note: as Squeeze is going to be released soon, don't you think it
would be convenient wait and install squeeze (wich will be the new
stable) instead of lenny (wich will become the new old-stable)?
