Sorry to bother you about this, but I haven't had too much
luck at Kingston.  I have a kingston KNE-PCM/M PC Card
ethernet card I'd like to use with Debian.  The pcmcia-ps
package seems to support it and recognize it, but I'm unable
to get the card to work.  I was using a Xircom, but that's
not supported under Linux.  I'd like to switch, but can't
get the Kingston to transmit.  I have Win95 (unfortunately)
instaled on the first partition, and the kingston doesn't
work there either, although Device Manager reports all is
well.  Do you have any experience with these cards?  Do you
have any idea what may be wrong?  The Xircom card works in
the same slot, with the samce network cabling.

Thanks in advance
