severn + 2.6.0-test1 kernel -- can't get wireless working



  the results of more experimentation:  so far, i installed severn
on my laptop, then the 2.6.0-test1 kernel straight from www.kernel.org.
that built and booted.  on top of that, i built the patched nvidia
driver and got that to work.  so far, so good.

  (side note:  the 2.6.0-test2 kernel in this situation is an
unmitigated disaster.  kernel panic every single time, even when
i build it based on the test1 .config file.  so i've just given
up on that kernel.)

  what's *not* good is that i've completely failed to get my linksys
WCF11 wireless pcmcia card working, and i'm at a complete loss.  

  as a test, i can reboot to the stock kernel (2.4 variation) that
comes with severn, and wireless comes up nicely (on eth0, via
DHCP from a linksys router here).

  when i reboot to 2.6.0-test1, i can verify that the card is
visible with "cardctl ident".  the modules hermes, orinoco and
orinoco_cs are loaded.  but trying to activate that interface
accomplishes nothing.

  the redhat-config-network tool does see the linksys pcmcia card
as the only device on the system, but when i try to configure a
wireless interface, the only choice i get is "other wireless card"
or something like that.  (doing this from memory since i have to
reboot back to 2.4 just to get email.  argh.)
  
  anyone else got past this point?  i'm definitely open to 
suggestions.
