wpa_supplicant and hermes drivers

Hi, good day for everybody.
just for curiosity.....someone have a driver_hermes for kernel 2.6.9? I have a proof for WPA_supplicant with lucent gold cards (pcmcia), but this hardware is not supported anymore. We have a lot of wireless cards and we want to work wpa enc. and we want to put them to work.

Again. sorry for my english. I hope you understand me

Visit and download the 2.6.9 kernel source, it is part of the kernel and has been for a long time.

A snippet from my Linux kernel version: configuation file;

# Wireless LAN
# CONFIG_WLAN_PRE80211 is not set
# CONFIG_IPW2100 is not set
# CONFIG_IPW2200 is not set
# CONFIG_LIBERTAS is not set
# CONFIG_AIRO is not set
# CONFIG_PLX_HERMES is not set
# CONFIG_TMD_HERMES is not set
# CONFIG_PCI_HERMES is not set
# CONFIG_ATMEL is not set

The code for the Hermes chipset is also available external to the kernel, in case that helps you with your proof:

Good luck. You would make a lot of people happy if you are able to make those old Lucent cards work with WPA.
