In modprobe.conf there should be line: alias wlan0 hostap_pci

If the blacklistning doesn't work, you can always move the orinoco_pci.ko module
outside the kernel module tree
(/lib/modules/2.6.xx-xx_FC3/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/), and then run 'depmod
-ea'. E.g.

1)mv lib/modules/2.6.xx-xx_FC3/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/orinoco_pci.ko /home/Ashfaq
2)depmod -ea
3)Reboot the system

Best Regards, Jar
