ok, here's what I have done:
I edited /etc/pcmcia/config.opts according to this site:
The laptop the author of that site was using is identical to mine, except my cpu is a 32 bit core, not 64
When that didn't work, I followed the instructions here:
unfortunately, when I run "ifconfig ath0 up", I get the following:
ath0: unknown interface: No such device
subsequently, "ifup ath0" gives me:
ath_pci device ath0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
so clearly my problem is Fedora not recognizing my network card. The pcmcia slot is recognized just fine, but it's ignoring the card that's plugged into it
anyone know what I've done incorrectly?
