Not sure if anyone is looking for this but I was able to get the SparkLAN Wireless CF adapter card WCFM-100 802.11g card to work using
the file system from this thread
after installing git-core and gcc
I went to this site
to get the necessary tools/drivers installed
once I completed those steps I started the interface
ifconfig eth1 up
iwconfig eth1 essid "wireless name" (do not use the qoutes)
then I was off and running.
Next step to get WPA working.
