I've been trying to get my orinoco card working on a StrongArm board but
fails.  The card seems to be successfully recognized by PCMCIA services
but it doesn't get through when the cardmgr was trying to execute
'./network start eth0'.  It has timeout error message shown as below in
[root at Linux /root]$tail /var/log/messages
<7>eth0: MAC address 00:02:2D:0F:0A:61
<7>eth0: Station name "HERMES I"
<7>eth0: ready

[root at Linux /root]$iwconfig eth0
eth0      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"ATTLABS"  Nickname:"Linux"

          Rx invalid nwid:0  invalid crypt:0  invalid misc:0

The essid and access point MAC address are correctly detected.  Anyone
knows why it has timeout message?
Anyone is familar with porting an orinoco driver to StrongArm system?
Please give me some advices or direct me to useful resources about that.

Thanks a lot!
