No. "not configured" means there is no driver. Might not be in your kernel
config, or may not exist at all, can't tell the difference.
The device string just tells more information and is not related to driver

I don't know, but maybe try a -current kernel and see.

miyu% grep -i prism /usr/cvs/src-current/sys/arch/i386/conf/GENERIC
wi*     at pci? dev ? function ?        # Intersil Prism Mini-PCI (802.11b)

Dunno if that's what you have. Might not too hard to get it attaching to
your cardbus.
