Success: migrating ISA PCMCIA bridge and wavelan NIC to kernel 2.4.7


        I finally managed to get my old ISA PCMCIA bridge working with
 the 2.4.X kernels (running 2.4.9 right now). I went from the stand
 alone pcmcia modules package to using the built in drivers in the
 2.4.X kernels. I had to change two files; as shown below.

	The first change was to get the ISA bridge recognized:

	The second change was to have the new orinoco driver be used
 instead of the old vwlan_cs:

	Works just great. 

 Go placidly amid the noise and waste, And remember what comfort there
 may be in owning a piece thereof. Avoid quiet and passive persons,
 unless you are in need of sleep. Rotate your tires. Speak glowingly
 of those greater than yourself, And heed well their advice -- even
 though they be turkeys. Know what to kiss -- and when. Remember that
 two wrongs never make a right, But that three do. Wherever possible,
 put people on "HOLD". Be comforted, that in the face of all aridity
 and disillusionment, And despite the changing fortunes of time, There
 is always a big future in computer maintenance.  You are a fluke of
 the universe ... You have no right to be here. Whether you can hear
 it or not, the universe Is laughing behind your back. National
