It's a week or so since I did anything to that laptop. I've got a working OS on it but I don't have a network connection, not to mention X or any other pretties.
First I want to get the network up and running. I know that the NIC works as I explained before, so that's not a problem. It's a Xircom Credit Card Ethernet 10/100+ Modem 56 CEM56-100
I know that the machine is connected to the pcmcia cardbus:
