The aironet drivers included in the kernel never worked for me (early
2.4.x-ac), so I use the airo and airo_cs modules which are disabled in
your pcmcia config.

You find the sources at (airo.c and airo_cs.c).
Copy them over the airo.c and airo_cs.c in pcmcia-cs-3.1.xx/wireless,
build the modules and there you are. :-)
