I'm going to have to look into that; this is the first I've heard about
pcmcia schemes.

You need to eject the card before you suspend. That is true even on
Windoze. What I do is
eject the card, then suspend, and when I reactivate, I reinsert the card
and then run my DHCP restart script which reconfigures the Ethernet
interface. This does, however, require that a DHCP server be available
on the networks you connect to.
