Default iwi not loaded by OS

I have an AMD64 laptop with an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG wireless card. It works under linux but I cannot get it to work under OpenBSD (using -current).

Config sees the device driver but dmesg.boot shows it cannot load the driver (see below). So there are is no iwi0 device. What do I need to do to have OpenBSD see the device.

As an asside: I could not get iwi-firmware-3.0.tgz to load as aq package (it complained that it only will load on 1386. So I untarred it into /etc/firmware and rebooted..

grep iwi dmesg.boot
iwi0 at pci0 dev 5 function 0 "Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG" rev 0x05: could not map memory space
root@genetraveller run 503>>config -e /bsd
