In the "Installing Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 For Intel x86" on the debian site,
on page 75, in chapter 7, part 7.5, it says " However, if you are
installing by way of a PCMCIA network device, this alternate must be
selected, and PCMCIA support must be configured prior to configuring the
network. This alternate step is sufficient to load the device driver for a
PCMCIA ethernet card." There is more to read. Check it out.
