Ok, I have same laptop with the same pcmcia xircom ethernet card.  I am 
running Debian unstable with a self compiled 2.6.10 kernel from the Debian 
unstable archive kernel-source-2.6.10_2.6.10-5_all.deb sources.

If you want to use my .config file for your system, find it attached.  It 
should work.  If you are compiling your own kernels, I don't need to tell you 
what to do with the file.  I do not use an initrd and compile a lot of stuff 
into the kernel, so you could probably trim it down some.  But if you want a 
kernel that works with a Dell Latitude Cpx with the Xircom ethernet card, 
then this one does a fine job.

You may have post your /etc/network/interfaces file for us to see if it is 
setup correctly.  When I take my laptop out of suspend, from root, I issue 
the command  cardctl insert    which turns the card back on, then I issue the 
command   /etc/init.d/networking restart  and get an ip address and connect 
to the local network.  I am sure there is an easier way, but this is 
relatively quick and works every time.  I haven't had the desire to research 
a more automatic way.

Now they've taken the first amendment, and I can say nothing about it.
