As I have mentioned before, if you want to use the new drivers (the
"orinoco" driver not the "wlan_cs" driver), then you do not need to
install a pcmcia-modules-2.4.17 package. The pcmcia-cs package has been
fixed to support these new drivers.
Remove the pcmcia-modules package and the conflicts will go away.
