The iBurst PCMCIA driver for kernel 2.4 has been ported to 2.6. This ebuild should install the required drivers to get it working. Refer to the following Whirlpool forums thread for details:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -pv ibut
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "ibut".

Removed keyword REQUEST. This bug is not a request it contains an ebuild. bug-wranglers re-assigned bug before I could upload ebuild :)
What exactly is an iBurst card?
I've started a forum thread for users to install this driver. Links to the iBurst website in here:
Just realise I referred to the package as ibut in my original comments. This was renamed to iburst-driver for the files I uploaded. Sorry for any confusion.

Version bump. Couldn't figure out how to install PCMCIA or USB module so it now just installs both. The PCMCIA USE flag is required to install the config files.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

sunrise overlay is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to
