Cicso wireless problem after kernel update

I have a problem with my laptop since I updated my fc2 kernel. With
kernel 18.104.22.168.358, my Cisco 340 pcmcia card worked perfectly with
almost no manual config. The other day, I ran up2date, and it put my
kernel to 22.214.171.124.435, and ever since then, if I boot up (card NOT set
to auto load) then insert the airo340, it just sits there and blinks.
At this point basically, my laptop is DEAD. No programs will run, I
can't even get a terminal window to load, the mouse works, and I can
even use existing terminal, but no new ones?! At this point, XINETD
appears to be DEAD, and when I try to shutdown (init 0 or shutdown -h
now), the laptop gets to STOPPING XINETD, and will just sit there for hours.
If I choose the older kernel in grub, the cisco card works perfectly again.
I tried lsmod (newer kernel), and immediately, aes, airo_cs, ds, and
airo all load, and pcmcia_core shows that airo_cs is using it.
My laptop is a Compaq NX7000 [Centrino]. My brother has the same model
laptop, and has duplicated the problem with his airo 350 card.
Proudly removed windows from my desktop 11/2002 and from my laptop
1/2004 -- Never been happier!
