Run lspci to list devices and get the bus/slot/function for the wireless 
card.  Then run lspci -n to get the pci id.  cardctl is for identifying 
pcmcia cards.  The built in wireless is a pci card, not pcmcia.  I don't 
use redhat, so I don't know what kudzu is supposed to do.  If it is the 
IBM dual band card (atheros 5211) then you'll need to look into the 
madwifi project on sourceforge.
