It's supported by the 3c59x driver. You *do* have that one, don't you?

It's not controlled by PCMCIA. Not without a lot of hackery. It's
controlled by Kernel Card Services (most or all CardBus cards seem to be).
If that's not enabled in your kernel, it needs to be. You need
CONFIG_HOTPLUG, CONFIG_PCMCIA, but not CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI.

It's there, it's just not configured yet. You can see it if you explicitly
ask for eth0.
Install hotplug, read README.Debian, configure /etc/network/interfaces
appropriately, you're done.
I'd like to hear about it if you get yours to survive a suspend. My 575 on
a Thinkpad 600E does not. I have apmd eject it whenever the laptop goes to
sleep. In fact, no CardBus cards do.
