But, in order for my /etc/init.d/networking script to find my eth0

do '/etc/init.d/networking restart', for enabling my eth0 nick.
Remove the line "auto eth0" from /etc/network/interfaces.
The network configuration for the pcmcia-cs package is done in the file
/etc/pcmcia/network.opts. Look at the predefined environment variables
here. If the cardmgr enables eth0, it also calls
/etc/pcmcia/network start eth0
And if eth0 is disabled (unplugging the CARD, closing laptop etc.), it calls
/etc/pcmcia/network stop eth0
For kernel 2.6, you should use hotplug for managing the PCMCIA cards
(CardBus) and the hotplug system will do a
So in this case, you should configure a logical interface "hotplug" in
If you need more advise, just ask.
