FE 2.0 missing eth0

I installed FE2.0 from scratch on my laptop. It found my 3CCFEM556B pcmcia card (Ethernet and Modem) but did not bring eth0 up. So clever me, or so I thought, I erased /etc/sysconfig/hwconf thinking kudzu would recognize it. Nope!, kudzu did not recognize it. Now I no longer have an eth0, let alone one I can bring up, which was point of this whole excersize anyway. Oh well enough intro let's get down to the specifics.

pcmcia-cs-3.2.7-1.5 is installed
3c574_cs is supposed to be my eth0
cardmgr always claimed no sockets found
cardtl <whatever> gave open_sock(): No such device
kudzu recognized my TI yenta sockets (PCMCIA slots)
modprobe.conf has and always did have
alias eth0 3c574_cs
lsmod still has

Before I reinstalled this it worked. This is an IBM thinkpad 600E.

Any explanation as to why my eth0 which never worked since my reinstallation, would be appreciated.

su to root and then run this ifconfig eth0. See what that spits out and post it here. It should bring up the interface. Also, what was in the /etc/sysconfig/hwinfo file that you erased. Maybe you should try to re-create it. I have never been crazy enough to mess with it since my networking has always been recognized. Also, try a google search.
