I used the documentation in wiki/hardware but when i was emerging the final 2 packages, ipw3945 ieee80211, the emerging failed, showing this message:

After trying this method, I tried to install the ipw3845 driver but wasnt able to do it, i follow step by step the instruction in the INSTALL file but still nothing appeared in iwconfig.
if anyone could help me, thanks.
