Generally when you insert the card in the pcmcia slot, the relevant
is automatically loaded after reading the /etc/modules.conf file.
Just make sure that you have linked some entries in the /etc/moduels.conf
for your cisco card as eth1  airo_cs(whatever device it is for wlan may be

And then you "modprobe airo_cs"
This will load the module airo_cs and then an lsmod will show you the
then do a iwconfig.

If things still doesn't work do dmesg and see if your card is being
recogzined or not.
