Description of problem:

Thank you very much for your excellent work on Fedora Core 1.
I love this distro!

I have a Linksys WCF12 Compact Flash wireless LAN card
which I am using with Familiar GNU/Linux on my PDA.

I bought a CF to PCMCIA adaptor to be able to use
this card in my laptop.

Unfortunately, it is not recognized by the
network configuration tool.

This can be fixed very easily by adding the following entry
to the /etc/pcmcia/config file:

card "Linksys Wireless CompactFlash Card WCF12"
  manfid 0x028a, 0x0673
  bind "orinoco_cs"

That's the only thing that was missing. Connecting
to my wireless network was immediate through the network
configuration too.

Could you implement this fix in the next release, please?
Thank you in advance,



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert the WCF12 Wireless card
2. Run System Settings -> Network
3. Click New, chose "Wireless connection"

You see only "Other Wireless Card".
