I'm trying to get a newly bought Netgear MA401 to work on a RH 8.0 
installation (on an HP laptop). These are the facts I know:

1) The hardware works just fine - the card and all work fine under 
windows on the same box
2) Neither the wvlan_cs or the orinoco_cs drivers seem to work (even 
though I can find reference to either or both of them working in 
various places).
3) I tried adding the device name, manfid and what driver to bind in 
/etc/pcmcia/config, and that didn't work.

I get "unsupported card in slot 0" (or 1) in /var/log/messages, 
nothing shows up in dmesg when I put the card in (I also get a low 
toned beep, which I hear is bad)

I'm stuck. Ideas?
