hi all!

i am using a lenovo notebook with intel pro wireless 3945abg built in it. i'd  used LFS6.2 book 2 build a system. I get this warninng after every boot.

Interface eth0 doesn't exist      [warn]

i'm right now compiling blfs6.2....n i've installed proper driver for my ipw card..which the kernel detects at boot...which is there when i run dmesg..

i think udev doesn't create a node for the device because i cannot find a directory in /sys/class/net for my device...the only directory there is lo.

the name is eth0 throughout for this device

i don't know how to fix it..

also...i don't see nodes for other devices such as cdrom...

thanks in advance..
