O man, I'm the happiest fucker alive on this planet right now!!! :-)))))

Thanks a million!! The pci=assign-busses did it (fedora didn't get the
yenta_socket...part) As soon as I added this, everything came up. Since Id
already installed the madwifi, everything kicked in. The card shows in
lspci, in iwconfig and so on.

I think I've spent 25 hours on this thing, haha...

I will send happy thoughts your direction for a long time :-)

Out of curiosity, since I'm doing this to learn: what does the
"assign-busses" parameter do?


A happy man.

Could you test either 2.6.13 or 2.6.14-rc2, please? Alternatively, the
following kernel boot options might or might not help, I'm not familiar with
vendor kernels.

06:02.0 is on the same bus as the CardBus bridge, therefore I doubt that
this is the CardBus card.
