I think that card is supported OK. I've installed debian via the net and
PCMCIA many times and it works a dream. There is one step during the
installation where you have to take an alternate choice ("Configure PCMCIA
Support"), not the default ("Install the Base System", I think). When you've
got PCMCIA working you then do "Configure the Network" and then you have the
option of installing by ftp, nfs or whatever.
