Proxim orinoco gold wireless card

Anyone ever gotten one of these working?  This card has the dood rising
his arm on it but there is nothing really to rise the arm about when
trying to use it in Linux... :)

cardctl ident shows it as:

Socket 0:
  product info: "Agere Systems", "Wireless PC Card Model 0111", "", ""
  manfid: 0x0156, 0x0003
  function: 6 (network)
I tried adding this to /etc/pcmcia/config and/or /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf
and the card is mis-identified and the hermes/orinoco drivers do not
load correctly.  I get some of this stuff in dmesg:

Jul 11 21:40:04 speedy kernel: hermes @ IO 0x200: Truncating LTV record
from -2 to 6 bytes. (rid=0xfc01, len=0x0000)

then finally...

Jul 11 21:40:04 speedy kernel: eth1: firmware ALLOC bug detected (old
Symbol fir
mware?). Trying to work around... failed!

Any ideas so I could raise my hand along with the guy on the card? :)
