Correct way of using the orinoco_cs driver

If I use the one with the kernel I get a message in the log about needing to
upgrade orinoco because of a firmware bug in my zoomtel.

This is why I\'m trying the newer source code.

I have made sure that the links in /usr/include point to the correct headers and
pcmcia is building aginast the correct source.

I\'m not useing the kernel pcmcia modules could this be the problem ? The one
email message I found that made any sense was said that the code version problem
was caused by modules compiling aganst the kernel pcmcia not the pcmcia source
code, but it did not get any way of fixing this.
