Oh, you mean the PCMPC200, right ?
This one is a bitch to set up about 3 months ago.

Make sure you compile the latest pcmcia-cs package from source.
That might work.
If not, then get the latest driver from that certain company involved with
tulip driver development (what was its name again, damn ??).

Probably yes.
Older pcmcia-cs do NOT work, as the tulip_cb driver doesn't contain the ID
of this specific card yet, which leads to promiscuous mode problems
(receiving only with a running tcpdump possible etc.)

Ask me again if you get into trouble.
