Orinoco driver get loaded

This seems to be orinoco card not Prism card, so the orinoco_cs is the correct drver
to this hw. The "double" loaded driver problem is common bug.

Try to blacklist hostap_cs in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-compat, add line:

blacklist hostap_cs

If the blacklistning doesn't work, you can always move the hostap_cs.ko module to
outside the kernel module tree
(/lib/modules/2.6.xxxx_FC3/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/), and then run 'depmod -ea'.

1) mv /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/hostap/hostap_cs.ko
2) depmod -ea
3) Reboot the system
