Trying to get orinoco driver in monitor mode

This is the output from iwpriv eth0

eth0 Available private ioctl :
force_reset (8BE0) : set 0 & get 0
card_reset (8BE1) : set 0 & get 0
set_port3 (8BE2) : set 1 int & get 0
get_port3 (8BE3) : set 0 & get 1 int
set_preamble (8BE4) : set 1 int & get 0
get_preamble (8BE5) : set 0 & get 1 int
set_ibssport (8BE6) : set 1 int & get 0
get_ibssport (8BE7) : set 0 & get 1 int
monitor (8BE8) : set 2 int & get 0
dump_recs (8BFF) : set 0 & get 0
This is the output from:
modprobe -l | grep orinoco


output from uname -r 2.6.11-auditor-10

Was wondering if anybody could help me get this into monitor mode. Also if you need more information from me to help out with this problem just ask.

Thank you for any reply's...
