What I've done:
1. Ran the drver with Wine, unshielded the cabinet files, and looked for driver files. Found none.
2. Downloaded RealTek's Net8180.inf driver and installed with NDISWrapper -i and used -d with lspci.
3. Googled for more info. In almost every case, there was a file called "Bel6020.inf", which was nowhere on the Web to be found, OR on the driver or ANY of the cabinets, or ANYWHERE on the accompanying driver CD. Sending me that file via email would be appreciated.
4. Ran it in Knoppix, and it said my PIRQs didn't match. I'm running it with "pci=usepirqmask" right now.

This ia a PCMCIA/carbus card, correct?
...and you had it working before with ndiswrapper?
Which version card is this? It can make a difference.
the Net8180 driver I used with NDISWrapper
the Belkin driver that was supposed to have Bel6020.inf in it
If it worked in the previous version of Ubuntu (without ndiswrapper), I am wondering what chipset that it actually has. It would be strange if it worked previously and not now, unless this is a bug in the upgrade process.
What I was wondering, is where did you see references to the Bel6020.inf on the web?
I can't get the cab files to extract after unzipping the exe package, so I can't see if it is there. How did you get the cab files to decompress? Maybe it just a fluke with Fedora Core 5.
Are you trying to hotplug the card, or have you also had the card in before booting?
Do you think I should recompile my kernel with Atmel support (if I download the drivers from sf.net)? I need a fix quick, because I'm going away for a month later today (so if this thread gets bumped after a month, you'll know why).
However, as per my link in the first line of my post # 173849 above, there seems to be a bug with the upgrade to Dapper. See the last post on that bug report, which describes your situation exactly. Not you exact card, but the same chipset.
I would post a thread on the Ubuntu forums, where folks are most likely encountered this problem and have found a solution.
The bug report is somewhat confusing, as the original bug file speaks to the F5D6020 orinoco-based wireless card, the last comment, to your card chipset.
My point was to explain that there seems to be a problem with the card and PCMCIA.
The Amtel driver is already in Dapper, but apparently has a problem.
Given the issue at hand, this is why I suggested posting on the Ubuntu forum. Your more likely to get a good response, given others have had the same problem with these cards and someone is likely to have found a solution, which might include dumping the installed version and upgrading to a newer one. But, better let them tell you what exactly to do, then trying solutions that may or may not work.
I would rather have you go there, then get frustrated with not getting a direct answer from this forum.
I upgraded my entire system EXCEPT the kernel, and it worked fine. This included removing the hotplug package (it got integrated into another one). Therefore, the problem lies somewhere between kernels 2.6.12 and 2.6.15. I have a transcript of all the modifications to the atmel_cs driver between the versions:

[PATCH] pcmcia: id_table for atmel_cs.c
Add pcmcia_device_id table.
atmel_cs.c? Hmm...... Looks promising. But there's more.
And this, from the 2.6.14 log:
[PATCH] tpm: fix tpm_atmel.c on ICH6
While installing Debian on our new IBM X41 Tablet, I tried briefly to use
the built-in Atmel TPM. The Athmel TPM is also located on the LPC-bus of
the ICH6. To make it work I had to apply the following patch:

[PATCH] atmel_cs : WE-17 support
This adds support for WE-17 to the atmel_cs driver. Not
tested, I don't have the HW.
Untested? Not good. I looked for a patch, and found this:
[PATCH] TPM compile fix
drivers/char/tpm/tpm_nsc.c:277: error: `platform_bus_type' undeclared here (not in a function)
drivers/char/tpm/tpm_atmel.c:175: error: `platform_bus_type' undeclared here (not in a function)
Make sure to include proper headers.
Bad headers... Oog...
Should I email this to someone at the dev team? The problem is definitely in the kernel.
And anyone else reading this, I warned you about the bump.
