	Well... I think something is broken. I have a similar setup and my orinoco 
card doesnt work with 2.6.0 AND acpi. When I insert the card I get the error 
"Unknow Method: RequestIRQ" on syslog.  My "wired" pcmcia 8139 wotks fine. I 
try the mm2 patch and it works but since it broken other things I give it up.

	Hm... I´m not aware of that.
