thanks for the response..there's not any problem with the nomenclature...
recently...when i executed /sbin/ipw3945d-start the device node got created and i could find a directory eth0 for the device in /sys/class/net....(ipw3945 is the driver)....but why doesn't it startup at boot......and i still cannot connect to any ap using dhclient
there's no modprobe.d modprobe.conf module.conf in /etc directory as suggested by other mailing lists.....though i created modprobe.conf with the contents 'alias eth0 ipw3945'
i don't 've net-tools installed...i couldn't compile it...but i've other wireless tools like iwconfig installed...
