Re: Problems with 3Com FE575 PCMCIA NIC

Thus spake Martin Bauer (baui@gmx.ch):

You're lucky. Unfortunately the sarge install puts

	auto eth0

in the /etc/networking/interfaces file, which means that it tries to
bring the network up before the PCMCIA services are loaded.

Typing dhclient as root will enable the network, but a preferable
solution is to remove the offending line and just leave the

	iface eth0 inet dhcp
