Trying to install Orinoco drivers

I'm trying to install the latest Orinoco drivers, in FC2, for my wireless PCMCIA card.

I downloaded the file orinoco-0.13e.tar.gz and the patch file orinoco-0.13.e-patch.diff that allows the card to be placed in monitor mode.

I successfully extracted the files and patched them with the .diff file.

After running the 'make' command I get the follwing. I'm guessing that since I've updated the files recently that some minor changes may have been made to orinoco_cs.c (I have no idea, I'm just guessing from looking at the output).

What do I need to do to get a successful compile?

Thank you for any help extended.
