"The missing firmware files are: iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode..."

During installation of Debian Linux Squeeze (6.0 / 2.6.32.5) on Toshiba Satellite M200 / PSM3CA the following message is displayed at the stage "Detect network hardware":

"Some of your hardware needs non-free firmware files to operate..."

"The missing firmware files are: iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode..."

Can somebody advise where to obtain these files? Or, how to tell Linux that the firmware files are already built into the Kernel (supposedly, as someone claimed)?

Thank you in advance for your support!
