I;ve got a couple of mini-PCI boards that are supposed to be 802.11b
cards.  When I put them into my soekris 4521 running Debian Linux the
results I get are puzzleing.  First it does not show up as a pci card,
lspci does not show it, hostap_pci doe not find it.  hostap_cs however
does find it, sortof.  Console log below.  First question, why is this
card showing up as a pccard and not a pci card.  Second, coudl this juts
be a firmware problem and how might I go about upgarding.
