Naw. You're doin' it the hard way.

I just did this yesterday on a TP755C and it was a piece of
cake. Follow this:

1) Get the STABLE debian package


2) Remove any previous kernel source you have from /usr/src

3) Install the kernel-source-2.0.3_2.0.30-7.deb package

4) Make sure there's a link
	/usr/src/linux -> /usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.30

5) Follow the instructions in /usr/src/linux/README for building a new
kernel. Including the removes in /usr/include and subsequent logical

6) Build a new kernel.

7) Test the new kernel. (Be sure and keep the old one around and some
method of booting it just in case).

8) Now install the pcmcia-cs stuff. I did NOT use a debian package. I
did it from the pcmcia distribution.

9) That's it. I was off to the races and the combo 33.6+10Mb Megahertz
PCMCIA card is working like a champ.

	Well, I haven't really tried the modem, other than issuing a
few AT commands, but the ethernet part is working without a hitch. I
did have to edit the file /etc/pcmcia/network.opts manually, but it
was straightforward.

If you need help beyond the above drop me a note!
