Bug#115467: problems with Stage 2 of woody PCMCIA net install

Package: boot-floppies
Version: Sept. 23?

Sorry about the lame version info. I couldn't see it when I rebooted,
off the floppies and I'm on my way to the airport... I can gather 
more info next week if needed.

I installed from the woody floppies of last week.  I selected a PCMCIA
network install, and configured by dhcp. Everything went swell until I
rebooted for stage 2.  At that point the ethernet card was not brought

>From memory, here is what I did:

go to a different virtual terminal.

add eth0 to /etc/network/interfaces, i.e.

    auto lo eth0
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

start pcmcia services

      /etc/init.d/pcmcia start

rejigger the ethernet card.

ifdown eth0
ifup eth0   

After I installed pcmcia-cs from tasksel (i.e. the laptop task),
and overwrote all of the configuration files (i.e. always choose I),
then the card is configured fine.
