Re: how does it all fit together? iwconfig, wlan-ng, hotplug, and pcmcia

Hotplug will handle cardbus (32 Bit) cards, where as pcmcia jsut handle
16 nit cards. Its a tad confusing at first, until you realise that
cardbus is more or less PCI, and is therefore handled by pci

To make my DLINK DWL-G650 Card work, I had to add to
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts to set up driver loading, and then add to
/etc/network/interfaces to allow hotplug to bring the interface up.

It certainly makes things interesting.
