Well, I'm glad to hear it works, aside from this "restore networking
at boot" glitch. I recently did an NMU to dhcp-client that I think
bears on this problem. It may fix it in fact.
You can test with the official 3.0.14 we're building now, or not wait,
and check it this way:
If you remove /etc/rc?.d/*dhcp-client, then reboot, does the pcmcia
networking come up properly on it's own?
Also, is /etc/pcmcia/network.opts setup properly?
