I have now installed TWO different Airport Extreme cards (A1026) in an
early G5 tower (2.0GHz DP/PCI-X, or PowerMac 7,2).

Unfortunately, the Mac cannot "see" either of them. If I go into Network
Diagnostics, "AirPort" is greyed-out/not selectable as an option. On "About
this Mac", when you click to get info on Airport, nothing is found.

I've seated/re-seated the card(s) multiple times, pressed the CUDA switch,
repaired permissions, I have no idea what else to do.

I installed the system software (Snow Leopard) BEFORE I got the card, but I
cannot imagine that it would have had to be installed for the proper
software to be there.

Anyone got any ideas? Since I've tried two cards, I think I can rule out
the problem being the card.
