Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.1.12

Following Section 7 (Using dbootstrap for Initial System Configuration) of the "Installing
Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 For Intel x86" document, I tried to install Debian on a Toshiba Tecra
8000 with a PCMCIA 3Com 3c589D-TP NIC over NFS.  It looked good until I got to 7.14
``Install the Base System''.  The laptop would fail to contact the NFS server and the link
light on the network switch was not lit.

At the console, running 'ifconfig eth0 up' produces:

eth0: unknown interface

Running 'ifconfig -a' only shows:

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

Running 'lsmod' shows that the pcmcia and network modules loaded:

Module         Pages    Used by
3c589_cs           2            0
psaux              1            0
smbfs              6            0
nfs               12            4
cdrom              1            0
ds                 2    [3c589_cs]      2
i82365             5            2
pcmcia_core        9    [3c589_cs ds i82365]    0

Running 'ps' shows card manager is running:

1       (init)
19      (dbootstrap)
2       (kflushd)
20      (sh)
2459    (cardmgr)
2494    (ps)
3       (kswapd)
4       (md_thread)
5       (md_thread)
820     (nfsiod)
821     (nfsiod)
822     (nfsiod)
823     (nfsiod)

Running '/target/etc/init.d/pcmcia restart' shows the following:

Shutting down PCMCIA services:start-stop-daemon: not found
 cardmgrstart-stop-daemon: not found
Starting PCMCIA services: modules/lib/modules/2.0.38/pcmcia/pcmcia_core.o: a module named
pcmcia_core already exists

/lib/modules/2.0.38/pcmcia/ds.o: a module named ds already exists
start-stop-daemon: not found
start-stop-daemon: not found

This very same laptop had RedHat Linux 6.2 running on it without any network problems
before it got blown away for Debian.
