Re: [Fwd: pcmcia ethernet card]
It is a long time since I managed to have the pcmcia ethernet card
working, so I hope I'm not giving you bad infos, anyway it's nothing
you can't find in the pcmcia howto.
Get the product info about your card by running 'cardctl ident', e.g.:
booker:/etc/pcmcia# cardctl ident
product info: "PCMCIA", "LNT-10TN", "1.0"
manfid: 0x0000, 0x0100
function: 6 (network)
no product info available
Then lookFor/put an appropriate entry in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, e.g.:
card "Ethernet NE2000 compatible"
version "LNT-10TN", "1.0"
I can't remember at the moment the exact URL of the "dbase" with all
of these entries collected, I believe that you find it if you just
follow the links in the pcmcia howto, we are also encouraged to post
the product identity of any not-found card.
Hope that helps,

If one day you find out that the address firstname.lastname@example.org isn't working
any more, (some)one of the following ones should be surviving:
email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
