The NM list doesn't have much on this (and mostly from me - I'm on the
list).

As far as I'm aware, the problem is that hal doesn't recognise the
capabilites of the PCMCIA card.  It should have an entry something like:
	info.cababilities	string	net.80211 net
but it doesn't list any info.capabilities.

I'm going to file this against HAL and see what happens.

see: BUG #145750 ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=145750 )
