Why do you want to in particular?

You could possibly use `cardctl ident' to get some useful info [0],
but that's probably a bit dubious. ifconfig and everything else just
treats it like any other network card, as far as I'm aware.

I'd have thought a ``Do you use PCMCIA for your network? [yes/no]'' question
would've been the way to do it, personally.


[0] On my system it comes up with:
        Socket 0:
          no product info available
        Socket 1:
          product info: "PCMCIA", "Ethernet Card", ""

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
