Help with FC6 and Orinoco Gold pcmcia card



Hello all.  After a frustrating weekend trying to get my Orinoco Gold pcmcia wireless card to load, I give up, and turn to you.  I know little about getting this card to work, but here is what I *do* know...
 
-ifconfig doesn't show a wlan0 interface
-dmesg shows it sees a card inserted (PC Card bus but nothing more)
-iwconfig doesn't have any interfaces showing wireless extensions
-a search of the file system shows the existence of orinoco.ko orinoco_cs.ko and hermes.ko
-modprobe orinoco, modprobe orinoco_cs, and modprobe hermes doesn't seem to make a difference.
-I assume I shouldn't need to compile any drivers as they seem to already be on the system (see above)
 
Any walk-thru or advice would be appreciated.
 
Regards,
 
Christian
