Unhappy Redhat 8 and Linksys WPC11 troubles

I have a new install of linux Redhat 8 on a toshiba satellite 4200. All is working fine, even my 3COM pcmcia network card, so I assume the pcmcia services are working, but wheh I plug in my linksys WPC11 it fails.(One lowtone beep)

I don't have any better luck with an Avaya or Orinoc Gold cards either, they do get two high beeps, but they will not activate in the network configuration panel.

My wireless network is an adhoc with a Windblows XP sharing the connection. WEP is not on. The link works fine in windows. Adding a D-Link AP soon, maybe that will help?

Any help would be great, hoping to get Gates virus out of my home soon.

I'm having the same problem. However, I think Mandrake 9.0 will detect the card. I didn't try to confirm it much because I wanted Red Hat on all my machines at home. You might give it a try if the specific distribution doesn't matter.
