    Hi there

    I have successfully installed RH9 alongside windows XP on my laptop. My
    PCMCIA controller is also installed. I tried following the guide on to install my D-link DWL610 but the problem is that when I try to watch
    the kernel log with: tail -f /var/log/kern.log the file does not exist.
    Furthermore if I run
    insmod pcmcia_core.o
    insmod yenta_socket.o
    insmod ds.o
    They are all loaded already meaning that even if I could read the kern.log
    file I would not see an entry where I could see the vendor and device IDs
    of my wireless lan card.

    I have tried finding it with lspci -vv which only gives this:
    00:08.0 CardBus bridge: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ6912 Cardbus Controller

            16-bit legacy interface ports at 0001

    But nothing with my wireless lan card.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to continue?

    Thx in advance
