Dapper on Dell Precision M65

I'm typing this using the Ubuntu Dapper LiveCD on a Dell Precision M65.

I'm not intending to install Ubuntu on it because it is for someone else.

Quick report, the wired connection works out of the box. Wireless is installed but doesn't seem to register as a wireless connection. It is calling it an eth1 device. Network-manager (nm-applet) doesn't see it.

Here is the lspci output:

This is the device I think i think is the wireless card (lspci -vv)

I'm not going to spend much time on this but I will try to use fw-cutter to see if I need to download some firmware. Although the bcm43xx driver isn't loaded.

Here is what we purchased using Dell's SKU #'s

It looks like the laptop is using Intel's ipw3945 driver.  Everything looks like it is working but network-manager doesn't seem to like it.
