I presume you're talking about the new orinoco driver - orinoco_cs, and your Linksys WPC11 v3 adaptor.

...remove the linux driver completely

No need to remove (delete) the orinoco driver, just don't load it, and check that Puppy hasn't automatically loaded it, by running "lsmod". If it is loaded, then unload it like this - "rmmod orinoco_cs". Now you're ready to use the wifi-beta2 drivers.

and modprobe the xp driver

You cannot modprobe a Windows driver. The Windows driver is first installed by ndiswrapper/wifi-beta2, then you modprobe ndiswrapper.
This process is automated to some some extent, I believe, by wifi-beta2. See wifi-beta2's instructions.

wouldn't it treat the card like all the rest?

I don't understand the question. Are you asking if scanning will work? ndiswrapper fully supports scanning.

I got the orinoco to scan. Is it possible that the new linux driver orinoco_cs did not take effect until I did
rmmod orinoco-cs
rmmod orinoco
rmmod hermes
re-seated the card
dhcp toggle
scan and all the sudden there
are 4 networks available
I know that the last 3 are my neighbor so it is actually only 2 but could this have done the trick?

I am going to try it on another PupTop to make sure or try it with a live cd.

Edit, refering to the orinoco classig gold card with the antenna jack with an antenna connected. Sorry about any confusion.

Sorry but I can't resist this'
My home connection. this is as fast as my dsl modem will run.
3005k or just over 3 meg/sec on my 4 meg modem.
Connected to my neighbor 300+ feet away across the road through several walls. 1269k or 1.25 meg/sec and he has a 1 meg modem.

This is why I wanted to get these cards to scan. With a range extender I can now stream live from the events hall next door on a PupTop.
