I was never able to get the Etherjet card working in my Thinkpad 240.
I compiled newer kernels, up to 2.2.18pre something, I downloaded and
compiled the newest pcmcia-cs sources. Nothing ever worked for me with
that card. Finally I replaced it with a D-Link DFE-650, which cost
about 1/3 as much, and it Just Worked. As best I remember, I didn't
have to do anything special, it just worked.
