I'm not in a position to look up that driver right now...... but I think you will find that the Intel mini PCI format WiFi cards (2xxxx series) are not supported by that driver, and only the Intel mini PCI-X format WiFi cards (3/4/5xxxx series) are supported.
I took a closer look at the readme for that driver, and what you've said looks to be correct:

Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
So I guess my next step will be to determine exactly which wireless controller is installed in this T41 and try and hunt down a driver for it. Determining exactly which controller could be a bit tough (I bought this laptop second-hand, so I have zero documentation/CDs), but I'll see what I can figure out.
Also, the Lenovo website doesn't mention anything about a video or audio driver. Does anyone happen to know what video & audio chips are used in these T41s? It's too bad that wireless networking, audio and video are the devices that aren't
