Isn't the orinoco driver for wireless cards? I have a Belkin f5d5020,
it's a plain network card. What you need to do is add these lines
to /etc/pcmcia/config or /etc/pcmcia/config.opts:
version "Belkin" , "F5D5020-PCMCIA-Network-Card"
"Trusted Computing": the biggest oxymoron since "Military Intelligence"
or "Congressional Ethics"
