hmm, you have the orinoco kernel driver loaded? And the pcmcia kernel
stuff as well?

that is completely unrelated as far as i am informed. hw_random is the
hardware random number generator which some systems have. The most
systems however don't have it but hotplug tries to load it. Why it
tries to load hw_random on inserting a wireless card into your notebook
is however a bit of a riddle to me.

Hope that helped
