    Default [ipw3945] - edit makefile to enable monitor mode/kismet?

    heya,

    got bt running from usb on dell m65 with ipw3945 chipset.
    i downloaded the last stable version of ipw3945 from sourceforge, compiled,
    and installed everything works fine, card is recognised and i can connect to my
    wlan.

    now i want to try out kismet, but it quits with an error message, to fast for me to read... something with: "bla, bla... monitor mode bla, bla"

    so i cat the makefile and come upon this commented entry: CONFIG_IEEE80211_MONITOR=y

    so now i wonder (being the linux noob i am): how do i uncomment this line and save the edited makefile? + there r a lot of other switches i can change like CONFIG_IPW3945_PROMISCUOUS, should i uncomment these also?

    help is very appreciated!
