Thanks Jeff, this helped me a lot. I have it up and running now, but
there is still one thing that baffles me... I can get the card up and
running, but it fails to come up on boot (or after resume). Basically,
the /etc/pcmcia/network.opts data is not taken into account.
I can get my eth0 up and running by putting the proper information in the
/etc/networks/interfaces file and running /etc/inet.c/networking after
bootup, but this is run before the /etc/init.d/pcmcia script so
obviously the network initialisation fails and you have to to have a
perfect mode one.
Since i don't have the S??networking script in my /etc/rc2.d directory,
I imagine that the reason is that my networking script run before my
pcmcia-initialising script. The funny thing is, my pcmcia-script has a
higher precedence than my networking script, and I would have thought
the pcmcia one executed first.
