Re: Xircom Realport 10/100+56k RBEM56G-100
No, all you have to do is install pcmcia support at install and it will compile all the drivers and load the right one as a module when needed. Be sure the card services are at the latest version, I believe 3.1.24. I had trouble with the Realport until I upgraded pcmcia-cs.
If you want to recompile the kernel [easy as eating pie with kernel-package], the pcmcia is compiled separately for modules, you can remove the drivers you don't want prior to compile time so that only the xirc2ps_cs module compiles.
