As far as I know, the pcmcia-cs package does that. Try running
"pcnetconfig" (or something like that) and it'll give you options on how
to configure the card each time you insert it. I'm not sure the
bootp/dhcp options work all the time (they don't for me, but it's not a
big deal), but the static IP configuration definitely works.
