I had the same problem with the Netgear MA401 card on my Dell Inspiron
5150.  In /etc/modprobe.conf, I had the line "alias eth1 orinoco_cs".
 I took out that line completely, reconfigured the card with
system-config-network, and everything works fine now.

I have the same issue on an IBM thinkpad A22m using an Orinoco Gold
card.  I removed the alias statement mentioned above and was able to
reconfigure the card with system-config-network.

This was an upgrade from Fedora Core 1 to Fedora Core 2.
