Can someone compile this driver for me?

Hey, I've been going crazy trying to get my wireless lan card working 
under linux, and have spent about 3 days trying to fscking compile the 
drivers & pcmcia contrib package, but it keeps failing and I dont know 
why or what to do. If anyone could PLEASE compile the driver;

with for kernel 2.2.18 (config file here for me I would be GREATLY appreciative.

FYI - I was trying to compile on a 2.4 kernel system but using the 
2.2.18 source tree in /usr/src/linux.
I dont know where to put the pcmcia package OR the driver files 
themselves. This was my first try (albeit a 3 day long try) at compiling 

Errors (compiling pcmcia):
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:9: Warning: Ignoring changed section attributes for 
make[1[: *** [cs.o] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

The kernel compiles and runs fine, but I don't know how to include the 
pcmcia stuff in the compilation and I cant get it to compile after 
runing make config, make all (as instructed).

The card I'm using is a netcomm smart wireless lan card, its the same as 
the one in the url I posted (same drivers). I believe its based on the 
Prism 1 chipset. BTW thats a 802.11 (not b) 2mbps DSSS card.
I dont know if I had it in the wrong dir or exactly what the process is 
to compile it. Heres what I did.
	-Config'd and compiled 2.2.18
	-Decompresed the drivers in /usr/src
	-Decompressed the pcmcia package which was inside the driver 	
	pack-make config'd the pcmcia pack
	-make all'd the pcmcia pack (make failed)

The netcomm site is near useless. The tectronic site has the same 
drivers as the ones that are on the netcomm cd, and the same manual.
Im 99.9% sure they are correct, but that isnt my problem *yet* since I 
cant even compile :P

Again if anyone could compile the driver for me I'd be greatly 
appreciated, or if not could you please give me VERY detailed 
instructions as to what to put where (esp the pcmcia package) and in 
what order to run commands to get it to compile. TIA!
