Mea culpa, I'm slightly inaccurate.  pcmcia-source as provided
upstream offers to read the current kernel as one means of extracting
the necessary knowledge.  pcmcia-source as Brian configures it in the
debian packagereads from a configured kernel source tree.  And yes,
you're corrent, it would still need the kernel source (to build the
IBM Token Ring driver for instance).

Perl is really designed more for the guys that will hack Perl at least
20 minutes a day for the rest of their career.  TCL/Python is more a
"20 minutes a week", and VB is probably in that "20 minutes a month"
group. :) -- Randal Schwartz
