I have a "Version 1" card, and details of my adventures are at

I seem to be stuck. Where do I go from here? 

The three modules are in the kernel (from lsmod), and the card is (apparently) 
seen by lspci -v: 

00:11.0 Network controller: Harris Semiconductor: Unknown device 3873 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Unknown device 1799:0601
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 11
        Memory at df801000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]
        Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2

I've updated these files: 

alias eth2 hostap_pci 


but I can't seem to get it to actually fly, I keep getting 

SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
Failed to bring up eth2.

 What's next?
