Wireless issues (driver and network tool)

From Bugzilla Helper:
msie 6 winxp pro
Description of problem:
I have smc2602W v3 wireless pci card. Several sites found on google
say that the driver needed is orinico. It seems that the system
doesn't recognise it. From smc (www.smc-europe.com) i was told to use
the drivers they uploaded on my site
(http://jbaou.maxfx.gr/smctech/smc2602w_v3_linux/2602v3/). in the
hardware information i can see my hardware as RF controller,
identification similar with the windowsxp one.
some time today i tried to recompile my fedora1 kernel without
success. i got several lines of errors but unfortunatelly i didnt
note. I tried to install kernel 2.6.4 without success since i got 115
lines of errors. i have this txt if needed.
plus when you go to configure the network using the networking tool
in the wireless section you find ethernet cards.
Tried twice. then gave up.
Steps to Reproduce:
for the kernel config i followed kernel.org steps.
for the wireless problems what can be found in the README at the link
Once kernel panik, will not build image.
Get it online with wlan?
This sounds like a driver issue.
wish it was. i borrowed yesterday a usb wireless card with drivers
and installer for redhat9. fedora wouldnt recognise it.
