PCI card detected as generic, sort of
I have a PCMCIA card I'm trying to install and configure. When I insert the card, I see that event in /var/log/messages as a generic card inserted. However, I do not see any changes in /proc/bus/usb/devices which I expect to see. I'm not sure how to get the card to appear as a device. If I can get that far, there is another thread here that will take me the rest of the way (unable to post url).
Details: Fedora Core 3, 4, and now 5. Card is a Novatel V620 EV-DO Network card. Card is supposed to show as a USB device to the OS.
I know I'm missing something basic. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. I've worked on this for over a week without making any significant progress, and could really use a hand. Thanks to all in advance!

The problem was occuring before I ever installed vmware.
You got eth0, so you have an ethernet card named 0.
Put your distro in your profile.
You can do static or dynamic:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
(read "man ifconfig" for more details) or:
