archives or from sourceforge.
When you configure your kernel disable PCMCIA support. That's right,
disable it. If you don't, pcmcia-cs will not build driver modules.
In the Network Devices section, enable Wireless LAN but don't choose any
Build and install your kernel, and reboot to it.
Go to /usr/src/modules/pcmcia-cs and do what the docs say about
configuring and installing. I can't remember if it's "make configure &&
make install" or "./configure && make install".
