There is no PCMCIA socket driver for the Gayle chip (I am/was working on
one), so none of the *_cs drivers are compiled by default, or work.

The fact that a card works on a PC is no guarantee at all that it will
work under Linux/m68k. I have tried several 10/100 Mbit cards which
normally use the pcnet_cs driver, and none of them work. Only the
cheapest kind of NE2000 compatible cards seem to work.

Kind regards,
