  Do you have an IP number for the laptop? Your sysadmin should give/lend
you one, and also tell you what the values for "broadcast", "gateway"

  As of the pcmcia 2.9.6, driver I am not sure 3c575 is
supported. 3c589 is. I am not sure, but hamm/slink may have built-in
pcmcia support.

  It may be easier to do it by ftp, because for nfsm, your sysadmin
will need to give you mount authorization on a server. 

  Hope that helps,
