Description of problem:

In RHEL5.3-Alpha Supplementary ISO, the iwl4965-firmware is version, which cannot work with the latest iwlwifi driver of RHEL5.3-Alpha.  Using this firmware will get "ucode read error" when up iwl4965 wireless interface.

The appropriate iwl4965-firmware is version and it can be download from this website http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads.  I have tested iwlwifi-4965-ucode- on RHEL5.3-Alpha.  It works well.

Please update the iwl4965-firmware with the new one in RHEL5.3 release.  Thanks.
