I've got that PCI card in a 2.2.x Linux box and never got it to work.  A
Lucent ISA PCMCIA bridge worked fine (with both the Buffalo and Lucent
PCMCIA 802.11b cards).  I've not tried it again with 2.4.x but I _think_ 
it _might_ depend on the PCMCIA package more than the kernel.

That could be one problem - you might need to assign an IRQ for the PCI
