For the moment there's only support for the orinoco pcmcia card in
GNU Mach.  The driver however doesn't support network scanning.

I've never used guessnet so far, but if it relies on (or you configure
it to) network scanning (i.e. `iwlist eth1 scan'), it won't work.  If
you configure it to just try one network config after another and see
whether it is able to connect to an access point, it should work.

If not, please tell :)
