Wireless Card MN-520 Wierd Problem (Fedora)

Hi. I have gotten the Microsoft MN-520 Wireless Card to work under Mandrake and SuSE. I can't get it to work under Fedora Core 2 though. I got it to work in the other two by editing /etc/pcmcia/config file and adding the lines to bind it as Orinoco_cs. I tried doing the same in Fedora and removed the existing incorrect one in the wireless section (maybe that was the mistake), the light on adapter go on, but the device is not detected and orinoco or prism for that matter is not in the list for when I try to setup a new wireless connection. How do I fix this? Anyone have their config file so I can see? Thanks.
