Hi Carlos,

according to http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/ftp/SUPPORTED.CARDS
NetGear FA410TXC
is supported. I don't know if there's a difference in your card (TX) and the one

mentioned there (TXC).
I've never tried to install Debian from the net on a laptop. That requires to
run the whole pcmcia package (cardmgr) with some boot disk in order to
get the nework up and then be able to install it.
I think there's a way to do that ( I saw it somewhere - unfortunately I don't
where) but it might be easier to just get the CD's.
