I do not think that I understand your problem: the download is from
GNU/Linux after which the install unpacks each deb in turn.  When you
reboot, net support is not necessary to finish the install.

BTW, there is no pcmcia support in GNUMach;  Thomas was working on it
a while ago and stopped when he did not need it (feel free to correct me
on this).

I do not want to speak for Marcus, however, I think he is not overly
enthusiastic about doing the ppp port, so . . .
