here is what i did for my mandrake 9.1 on a dell inspiron 8100 using a linksys wpc11 wireless card.
First i ran logged in as root. Ran cardctl ident and took note of the manfid. Then i created a hermes.conf file by started up a editor and typing:
module "hermes", "orinoco", "orinoco_cs"
# LinkSys WPC11
card "Instant Wireless Network PC Card"
manfid 0x###, 0x### #substitute your addresses from the cardctl ident
Saved that to the /etc/pcmcia/.
You should here two short beeps.
Then i ran the drakconnect wizard, checked only expert settings, configured my eth0 which is my internal nic to boot dhcp but i decided not to have the service to start at boot, for the eth1 i made it start up at boot, filled in the my Essid "MyHome". As for everything else i left it blank, cuz im currently not running a WEP.
As for not seeing those fields winterbourne did u happen to maximize the box cuz i know i couldnt till i maximized it. But if it doesnt show i get u the commands to do it w/o the gui.
Thanks to finegan and some other internet tutorials to get this up and running
