works for me with the kernel pcmica stuff. [2.4.21]

But.. i have never got the wireless nic to come up automatically. Prob
cause i havent bothered to learn how to put the wireless stuff in
/etc/network/interfaces [path maybe wrong, from the top of my head ;-) ]
That is one thing that sucks about the wlan-ng stuff, no wireless extensions :(

i use a nasty script, bad way of doing things but works

/etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng start wlan0
ifconfig wlan0 inet up
route del default
route add default gw

card "Linksys WPC11 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card"
  version "Instant Wireless ", " Network PC CARD", "Version 01.02"
 bind "orinoco_cs"
