I'm using the an NetGear FA511 NIC to write you this Email right now.
It's working perfectly here without any hazles. I cannot use the kernel
pcmcia driver because of system freeze as soon as i load yenta_socket.o.
Therefore I have to use the pcmcia drivers from pcmcia-cs. I would
suggest to use them as well. Compile the kernel as well as the pcmcia
modules with 2.95, because i've seen unexplainable kerneloops when
compiling with gcc-3.3.

Just my 2¢
