Detecting Wireless Network Cards

I am trying to install an Belkin Wireless PCI Network Card 802.11b into my desktop. I am having problem getting RedHat 9 to recognise and install the card.
lspci -v detects the PCI card as

00:0a.0 Network controller: Linksys: Unknown device 8201 (rev 11)
Subsystem: Accton Technology Corporation: Unknown device 3201
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 10
I/O ports at e400 [size=256]
Memory at dffff800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1K]
Expansion ROM at dffc0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2

/etc/pcmcia/config allready had the lines

device "orinoco_cs"
class "network" module "hermes", "orinoco", "orinoco_cs"

but i added

card "Belkin Accton Technology Wireless PCI Card"
version "Accton Technology", "PCI"
bind "orinoco_cs"

and also changed to /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia to

cardctl ident returns
no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices

I am not 100% positive that the PCIC in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia should be i82365, although that is the setting in all the examples I have seen. Any suggestions on what is going on?

N.B. I have _not_ done anything i have not said here so if i missed something out that could be the problem.
