Gentoo Linux and 3COM PCI 802.11b

I have a 3COM PCI 802.11b adapter that I am trying to activate. If I do a

cat /proc/pci I see in the output

Bus 1, device 13, function 0:
Network controller: PCI device 10b7:7770 (3Com Corporation) (rev 2).
IRQ 9.
I/O at 0x6480 [0x64ff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xc6ffe000 [0xc6ffefff].
I/O at 0x6800 [0x683f].

So I know the card is being seen, What driver do I need to use this card. I tried the orinoci.cs modules, and a prisim2 module neither work

uname -a shows
Linux gentoo_server 2.4.19-gentoo-r10 #2 SMP Tue Dec 10 01:03:00 Local time zone must be set--see zic i686 Pentium II (Klamath) GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I found a site with a how-to in spanish that I used babel fish to transkate. It told me to edit the prisim2sta.c from linux-wlan-ng After I did that I did a make config, then make all. The make all exits with error codes set. This is a paste of the very end
