Here is my experience with a laptop with an onboard Realtek nic,
onboard Intel wireless and a PCMCIA slot. This laptop also has
firewire, which gets into the configuration of nic devices, somehow. I
have an Orinoco wireless PC card I use, well supported much like the
Prism cards. during boot, Discover/Hotplug tires to set up the firewire
and onboard Intel wireless card. I say tries, because there wasn't
(yet) a driver for the Intel card and also tries to setup the firewire
nic, which doesn't exist. I have to disable the firewire module to get
the PC card to work. This all went away one I compiled the IPW2100
module for the Intel wireless.
Maybe somewhere in there you may find some help.
