Wow, you were able to get the orinoco_pci module to probe? with a pcmcia card? In a laptop!!! that's freakish.
With pcmcia cards, you have to let cardmgr load and bind the modules, which means it has to have an entry for the 2.5 under /etc/pcmcia/config, or, better yet, its own conf file...
Try downloading this guy:
and putting it in /etc/pcmcia/
This should get you the two happy beeps, if not post back and we can hack it in there by the card's ident.
