2 Cards at once

I am trying to get two cards working in one machine under Redhat 7.3.
I have a WL200 setup in Master mode as an AP, and an Orinoco Silver running
an ad-hoc link to someone else.

Does anyone else have a similar setup working perferctly?


My current PCMCIA config file looks like this.

PCMCIA=yes
PCIC=i82365
PCIC_OPTS="irq_mode=1 extra_sockets=1"
CORE_OPTS=
CARDMGR_OPTS=


and the output of DMESG looks like this...

(Those last few lines I believe are due to there be no connection for the
ad-hoc link.)
