I'm using cacko from nand in a zubuntu dualboot setup. The cacko install has the eviljazz fastfpe-cachedfb kernel and his modules installed, and has had the disk-free patch applied. When I insert my Ambicom wifi card it is correctly identified by an on-screen pop-up, and then remains, apparently, uninitalized (and unavailable). The card works fine for zubuntu jaunty, and I think used to be automatically recognized in cacko/sharprom. I'd like to get wifi going in cacko as well as zubuntu- Any suggestions?

Check that the orinoco and orinoco_cs drivers aren't loaded (with "lsmod", remove them (if necessary, with "rmmod"), and blacklist them for good measure), make sure the hostap drivers are loaded "(modprobe hostap"), and lastly (or maybe firstly), check what ifconfig and iwconfig say on the matter.

Summary:

CODE
lsmod     <- look for things with "orinoco" in the output
rmmod orinoco orinoco_cs     <- if present in the above
(blacklist modules, if you so desire)
modprobe hostap     <- load the correct modules, if necessary
ifconfig
iwconfig     <-check to see if the interface is present
