I was using lucent wavelan/orinoco cards in two machines, one with
1.5_ALPHA and one with 1.5_ALPHA2. Both are 1.8-inch Sony Vaios with
the Ricoh chipset.  I had to turn on PCIBIOS fixups and restrict PCI
to using IRQ 9 and 11; tehn it more-or-less "just worked".

Sometimes, pc-card insertions or removals wouldnt "take" and I'd have
to pop and re-insert a card two or three times before the insertion
would "take".  Does it work better if you re-insert the card?

I'm running with a patched kernel that use tsleep()s instead of
delay() for pccbb up/down events.  I dont know if that makes adifference.
