That is the /etc/pcmcia/prism2.conf file. Here is an example entry:

card "Z-Com XI-300 11Mb/s WLAN Card"

    manfid 0xd601, 0x0002
    bind "prism2"

The trick to getting a new card to load is to get the manfid values. You should be able to see those in your log file when you insert the card.

I can vouch for the Z-com XI300 card working with this driver.
