Forget I ever said this last bit. It doesn't make sence to suggest it, 
since: if the PCMCIA shift didn't work in the first suggestion (where 
you use 'go back'), why should it be any different here upon reloading 
1st stage, where you again have to shift PCMCIA device. Also, you 
really can't just skip directly to 'detect network hw' like I described 
and make it all work...
