The card is recognized and checking /etc/pcmcia/config it should have had the orinoco_cs module bound to it. To manually configure the card:

ifconfig eth0 up
iwconfig eth0 essid networkname
iwconfig eth0 enc 213213213213
dhcpcd eth0

If you're not running encryption, you should be able to skip steps 2 and 3.

Cheers,

Finegan
