They are on your desktop right? I'm about 90% sure your desktop is the directory ~/Desktop.

Try
Code:
ls ~/Desktop
Are the *.fw files listed? If so run
Code:
sudo mv ~/Desktop/*.fw /lib/firmware
Sanity check:
Code:
ls /lib/firmware
The *.fw files you copied should be listed.

Follow up with
Code:
sudo modprobe ipw2100
i just tried that, and it shows up in the /lib/firmware
both ipw2100-1.2 and ipw2100-1.3 files appear there.
Now under network connections i have all of my wireless stuff in, keys and everything. But it is not showing wireless connections as a possibility only auto eth0

any ideas?

Try
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
Does the wifi NIC show up (probably "eth1" or "wlan0")?

If not try
Code:
lsmod
Does "ipw2100" show up?

If not does
Code:
sudo modprobe ipw2100
throw some error that you could post here?

for the first one, the NIC comes up as eth0

and for the second one, ipw2100 does show up

but running sudo modprobe ipw2100 it says
