I believe that the file /etc/pcmcia/network.opts has a final stanza
which is supposed to use the Debian network interfaces file
/etc/network/interfaces to bring up the interface corresponding to the
wireless card.

So how the system works is going to depend on how that second file in
particular is set up. On my system, the relevant part of that file
looks like this:

# For the wireless card
iface eth1 inet dhcp
mapping hotplug
script echo

and that works well. This is for an Orinoco Gold card.  Three modules
are loaded---orinoco, orinoco_cs, hermes.

Good luck,
