Yes, that's right.  The slots handle both kinds of cards.  The 32bit Cardbus
cards give you faster speed on a 100Mbit net.  Support for the 32bit cards
isn't (or wasn't, I don't know the latest) as well developed as for the
older 16bit pcmcia cards.

The usual way ;)  Holding the appropriate key while powering or booting up
(ESC for Toshiba).  Toshiba utilities also let you tweak the BIOS while the
computer is running.  I don't know about Sony Vaio specifically.
