Back when I had one of these a few months ago, the PCMCIA drivers that come
with the standard potato install disks didn't work, so I couldn't do a net
install.  Instead I got a CD and installed the base system + compilers, then
recompiled the kernel and the latest pcmcia-cs package and it worked fine
after that.
