What do you mean "DSL doesn't see it"? Have you run lspci? Have you looked at dmesg for it? Have you run any of the other tools related to PCMCIA and/or wifi?

i have a similar problem.
the cards dont even light up.
nothing about them in lspci or dmesg.
i know the cards work since i had them in another DSL computer before. tips?

If laptop is old it may not support card bus, i.e., gold colored edge cards.
Try using the boot code:  pci=assign-busses
That works for my old TP240 with new(er) cardbus cards.

what do they do different?

Different kernels. Different versions of wireless extension. Different versions of ndiswrapper. Etc.
