Yes!  The pcmcia works!  Used the 2.0.9 pcmcia, forced the architecture to
get it installed, did a make-kpkg modules_image and a dpkg-buildpackage to 
get pcmcia-cs.  Had to fix all the control files to read alpha instead of 
i386.  Made an init file by copying the default one.  Installed, default 
settings, and plugged in a modem.  "Beep"  cu -l /dev/modem.  Whoo-hoo!

Now the clock moved forward 30 years and hwclock is broken in 2.2, and I
have no text console still, but we are getting there.
