Admittedly, I haven't played with PC-Card stuff since the 2.3 series. But when I did, switching to the in-kernel driver stuff meant switching *everything*. Your xircom_cb driver from pcmcia-cs won't load because it is for something different. You might try using the kernel tulip driver (built as a module). This is what I used for the PC Card on my now-deceased Toshiba -- it handles PC Cards as a special case of hotplug PCI. I think it's the right one for the network half of you Xircom too. I think then the scripts in the 'hotplug' package should help in automating the plugging and un-plugging of the cards, but I never used it. -- Joseph Fannin email@example.com "Bull in pure form is rare; there is usually some contamination by data." -- William Graves Perry Jr.
