Yes. The pcmcia-cs package now supports this as of version 3.1.25-1. I
figured that this would make it easier for the boot-floppies team, since
network configuration can now be confined to one file.
Use the stock (unmodified) versions of /etc/pcmcia/network and
/etc/pcmcia/network.opts from the pcmcia-cs package. As you can see,
the last part of the network.opts file calls ifup/ifdown. If you need
anything changed in the pcmcia packages, please let me know.
