Ubuntu is newer than Sarge. It is basically Etch AFAIK. They also have
a different policy WRT loadable firmware that isn't compliant with the
Debian Free Software Guidelines. The ipw2200 cards use such firmware.
I can think of three ways.
First, the source is in the Debian "contrib" repostitory. It is an
older version, but then I've had various issues with the newer ones
anyway. You can add contrib to your apt sources:
hauck@scheme:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
Then you can use dpkg to build a Debian package. You'll need kernel
headers installed for this.
Second, you can compile directly from the original source. The
procedure is documented and the code is available here (and you still
need kernel headers):
Third, you could use Ubuntu and add the Debian repositories to your apt
sources and call it good.
