Re: [Fwd: pcmcia ethernet card]
I'm using Debian 2.2 with 3Com but the idea is the
1. Make sure you have installed the pcmcia package.
You can check by looking for /etc/init.d/pcmcia folder
2. To set up the IP, edit /etc/pcmica/networks.opt and
fill in the IP address, netmask, network, broadcast
3. Restart the pcmcia script by running
Hope that works for you :-)
