I have updated the pcmcia package for a red hat 9
since it didn't include my intel pro/wireless card.
everything went smoothly during installation.
during startup the card gets recognized but the
configuration fails because of a reset timeout
here is what it says and thanks for your help.

    Please define exactly what you did, when you say
    you "updated" the pcmcia-cs package. The package in RH9
    certainly included an orinoco_cs driver for your card.

    A simple thing to try, would be to exclude IO 0x100-0x13f
    in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, in case you have an IO port
    conflict.

    If that does not help, then I suggest reporting the problem to
    the maintainer of the orinoco_cs driver.

    unfortunately, excluding the IO 0x100-0x13f in
    /etc/pcmcia/config.opts didn't solve my problem.
    concerning your question,I didn't know that my card used the
    orinoco_cs driver, and that's why I got the most up to date
    pcmcia_cs driver package and followed the instructions in
    the PCMCIA-HOWTO.

    Any progress on this problem? If not, please report:

    -- what brand and model of laptop is this?
    -- do you have any other PCMCIA cards that work?
    -- can you find the boot messages from the PCMCIA drivers?
