Thanks for the help. The first two commands accurate describe my card and
drivers used. I do not have a network.opts file at all. Since it appears
that file is needed how do I create it?

Is cardmgr running?
Does "cardctl ident" print out an reasonable description of your card?
Does "lsmod" indicate that drivers are loaded for your card?
Does /etc/pcmcia/network.opts contain the correct info for your network?
