WLAN Config Prob

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to Linux and have recently installed Slackware 9.0 on a Dell Latitude C400. The laptop has a built-in wireless card (TrueMobile 1150 Series PC Card) which occupies Slot 1 of the PCMCIA controller and is based on the Intersil Prism II chipset. I've checked out several sites about setting up Linux on a C400 as well as the Linux Wireless and PCMCIA How-To's and the man pages to no avail. Could someone please reply with explicit step-by-step instructions detailing how to setup and configure the card?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide,

I don't use Slackware and I have a different wireless card but I think you might like to know what I did.

My kernel configuration (relevant parts only):
# CONFIG_PCMCIA is not set
Then you install pcmcia_cs and wireless-tools.
Now you set your options on /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts and /etc/conf.d/net (at least in Gentoo these are the files you have to edit).
Just start the pcmcia service and see if it works. I can't give you more specific help, I'm afraid.
