I suggest hw-detect, see below.

No. But I think I identified the real cause of the problem:
installer boots up
first hw-detection for searching CD-drive
PCMCIA is detected, cardmgr is started, tries to load pcnet_cs and fails
(module is not available yet)
udeb from CD are loaded (like pcmcia-module-...)
second hw-detection run
pcnet_cs is loaded by discover
cardmgr is started again, but detects it is already runninf and DOES
If I kill cardmgr and start it manually again, it identifies the network
card and I can proceed. So hw-detect should really bring cardmgr to
actually try again to find and use cards in the second run.
