I've got a Toshiba 2100CDS too.  Apparently pcmcia_cs has some problems
with the PCMCIA controller on Toshibas.  Try running tsetup from DOS (or hit
escape while booting up), and then changing the PCMCIA support to 16 bit
only (I don't remember the exact name of the option, and I don't have
the manual in front of me so I can't check).

After I did that my network card (LinkSys) worked fine.
