Just wanted to let you guys know that I finally have everything working
perfectly without needing to run anything manually. I boot into Debian
and now have a perfectly running connection. What finally fixed it was
upgrading pcmcia-modules... to pcmcia-modules-2.2.19-idepci and all
the related pcmcia and kernel packages. This all came from unstable.
Unstable my...   : )   Thanks again for all your help. I'll definitly try to
write an install guide for my entire Inspiron 8000 system, including this
Xircom CardBus Ethernet II 10/100 network card, when I get everything
else setup.
