All it means is that the Card Services version in the kernel does not match 
either the version in the module or the version of cardmgr you are using.   
Are you sure you're compiling the orinoco driver against the right kernel

That's the module load failing probably.

Wierd, I've never had any difficulties. orinoco_cs in part of the 2.4.18
kernel you're using, so there is not even a need to go download anything.
You can compile it as part of your normal kernel compile.

make modules_install does it for me
