Subject:Orinoco with Slackware 10.2 w/ 2.4.31
Date:01:26:43 24/06/2006

Cool well I figured out that I have the 0.13d drivers.

For anyone wondering how to find out which drives you're running insert your card and type "dmesg" look for the ethX initialization part.
It'll tell you the installed version.
And BTW default Slackware installation with version 10.2 includes the Orinoco 0.13d drivers.

Thank you guys.
