Because linux/Documentation/wavelan.txt says:

"wvlan_cs" driver (Wavelan IEEE, GPL)
-----------------
o Config : Not yet in kernel
o Location : Pcmcia package 3.1.10+
o on-line doc : http://www.fasta.fh-dortmund.de/users/andy/wvlan/

and that page (@fasta.fh-dortmund.de) says:

Download:Kernel 2.0.x / 2.1.x / 2.2.x:
WaveLAN/IEEE Linux driver v1.0.4 (included in pcmcia-cs-3.1.15):
pcmcia-cs-3.1.15.tar.gz
Linux wireless tools v19 (kernel 2.2.13 and earlier):
wireless_tools.19.tar.gz
Linux wireless tools v20 (kernel 2.2.14 and later):
wireless_tools.20.tar.gz

Kernel 2.3.x
Note that kernel 2.3.x support is currently experimental.
WaveLAN/IEEE Linux driver v1.0.4 (patch for kernel 2.3.50):
linux-2.3.50-wvlan.patch.gz
PCMCIA subsystem v3.1.15: pcmcia-cs-3.1.15.tar.gz
Linux wireless tools v20: wireless_tools.20.tar.gz

and

Since the linux kernel 2.4.x contains its own WaveLAN/IEEE 802.11 driver,
this standalone driver is depreciated. Try David Hinds pcmcia package
and/or the linux kernel driver (orinoco_cs).

and orinoco_cs from 2.4.17 doesn't work, but wvlan_cs that came with my RH
kernel does.

but, I checked out the actual pcmcia-cs page, and it looks like I have to
abandon my working PCMCIA stuff, is that right?

I'm open to suggestions. Off list, if you don't mind, being as how I'm off
topic now.
