Cant get a Intel PRO/Wireless 2011 Lan card to work in Mandrake 9.0

Also the card beeps twice when i try to restart it

The card is recognized and checking /etc/pcmcia/config it should have had the orinoco_cs module bound to it. To manually configure the card:

ifconfig eth0 up
iwconfig eth0 essid networkname
iwconfig eth0 enc 213213213213
dhcpcd eth0

If you're not running encryption, you should be able to skip steps 2 and 3.
