I am no expert, but I don't think you need to load any modules (provided
you do have the pcmcia installed). You should edit
/etc/pcmcia/network.opts file to suit your setup, connect the card and
let it go. This approach worked for me (running frozen,
pcmcia-cs_3.1.8-4 and xircom card). _Do not_ set up any network info in
/etc/init.d/* files; pcmcia takes care of it.
