Description of Problem:

The pcmcia installer disks try to load wvlan_cs for my Linksys
WPC11 wireless LAN card.  This Prism2-based card needs
the newer orinoco_cs driver.  The wvlan_cs driver does not work
with this card.

Please provide an updated pcmcia.img to install the proper 
driver for this and other prism2 cards

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

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt install with pcmcia.img and pcmciadd.img
2. wvlan_cs attempts to load

Actual Results:

wvlan_cs does not properly initialize the card, installation cannot proceed

Expected Results:

orinoco_cs loaded and installation proceeds

Installation from wireless cards isn't supported / probably won't work anyway as
we don't provide any way for you to set wireless options such as essid or key. 
Deferring for now

We do not support wireless based installed.
