Right, it seems I need to check out my PCMCIA setup.  My NIC is an integrated
mini-pci one, which works fine but does not use PCMCIA.  When I insert the card
there is no sound and my GKrellM plugin thinks the slots are empty.  It does
mount as another drive under 'doze, so if I get PCMCIA sorted then I should be
up and running.  Thanks for that, it seems likely I am not on a hopeless quest.
Get PCMCIA and sound sorted on my C600 and I'll be a happy bunny :-)
