WiFi requires restricted modules

As a side-effect of installing the latest nVidia graphics drivers I installed the restricted modules package linux-restricted-modules-2.6.15-23-686. It turns out this was all that was needed to get WiFi working with the 686 kernel.

I already had it working with my non-SMP 386 kernel because the linux-restricted-modules-2.6.15-23-386 was already installed.
