Unfortunately, 32-bit PCMCIA support -- that is, Cardbus -- isn't available
until 5.0. I have little experience with the USB adapters, but you do have
other options, namely finding a 16-bit wireless card. Most of the Orinoco
cards I've come across have been 16-bit.
Not quite an ideal solution, but it works for me.
