Cant find my PCMCIA Netcard


Hey
Im new to linux, but manage to install mandrake 9.2, without any problems.
however when i boot into linux, my netcard isn't detected, not even in the list of found hardware.

The card is the type: IBM Etherjet 10BaseT PC card, and doring my search on the web, i found out that it probably is tulip_cs driver thats supposed to work with it.
How do i install this driver??

Best regards
Ole

My computer is:
IBM Thinkpad 770x.

The first step is to verify that the pcmcia module is loading.
/sbin/lsmod
Do you have a pcmcia-core?

What happens when you run:
cardctl

Try loading the module:
modprobe tulip_cs

Thanks, i dont think its the one, couse the manfid didnt match, but this does: http://tuxmobil.org/pcmcia_ci10131.html,but they havent got it to work... not good. well, i can try editing the config database.
The config file i am editing is /etc/pcmcia/config.opts is this right.. and the thing i add is:
product info: "IBM", "Ether Jet PC Card", "Version U11", " [..] Number -85H4801"
manfid: 0x00a4, 0x003f
function: 6 network
bind "tulip_cs" /should this line be added too you think???

now i have tried with and without the "bind tuplip_cs" line, but with no luck.
if i in the consol enters cardmgr and hits enter, it says that theres an error in options file line 56, which is the first line i entered:
product info: "IBM", "Ether Jet PC Card", "Version U11", " [..] Number -85H4801"
What would you do now?? Im lost.

I just went though this with redhats Fedora Core 2, it would find the card but never start the card up,

"lsmod" should show you "pcmcia_core"
which should have (ds, yenta_socket, and your cards driver)

I had to add "modprobe yenta_socket" to /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia
then
change the boot order so that pcmcia boots before network
this is all based on what runlevel you are booting into,

example
in rc5.d
S24pcmcia
S25network

S00 - S99 Network will probably be S10network and Pcmcia will probably be S24pcmcia, think of the "S" numbers as the order of which the services will load. and change accordingly.

hope this helps.
