ok,
i'am slow... but give me a break! That's why whis forum is for, isn't it?
So, if i resumed all that: (it's still doesn't work)
-Initiatialisation of pcmcia does work (double bip and card lites up)
-The xircom driver is present (xirc2ps_cs)
-If i do ifconfig eth0 up (no bad return info)
-If i give a static ip to eth0 ( it sticks...and i can see it with ifconfig)

The network uses dhcp (the problem is seem to be here)
-by doing dhcpd eth0 it doesn't find dhcpd
-If i look in the repertory /etc/rc.d/init.d/(i don't see it eather)
-in the /etc/pcmcia/, there is no network.opts file

so:
-my last try was to do setup and to try to configure network with dhcp (no bad return, but it doesn't dhcp)
-ifconfig still return only the loopback
-/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart (still return a fail when starting eth0)
Please, don't let me down.

Hehe, Grrrgghhh!

dhcpcd, that "c" is the difference between the client necessary to snag a lease from dhcpd, which is the server! Without doing a custom install, you probably didn't install dhcpd, but you almost definately have dhcpcd!

Cheers,

Finegan

ok,
i did:
dhcpcd eth0 (takes a while, prompt comes back normally)
but after ifconfig... again only the loopback interface :^(

how can i check if it is there or how to install it is my next question(i guess)?

The client timed out trying to get a lease... If the driver loaded right, which I'm almost ironclad certain it did if you can ifconfig eth0 up... and if everything in "dmesg" looks cool, then I'd check the hardware front to back, the cable, the router, make certain that the link lights are up, that the dongle is seated if you have one of those types pcmcia cards. You might want to man through dhcpcd and find out the verbose logging option, -v I think, I can't check right now as I'm at work on a win crate. I hate to give an AOL-phone-pool type reply, but I just want to avoid the possibility that this is something silly. I spent 7 hours three weeks ago trying to get a network connection for my Sparc when swapping cables did the trick... and the bad one worked fine with a different machine.

Luck,

Finegan

Well, i can tell you for sure what the cable side is OK, i have also W98, W2K server and XP pro on that same laptop. They all work and connect fine with my other machines (well, as fine as MS can work :^)
-dhcp get resolved on all other os.

I don't believe nothing comes out of that card... As i said before, even with the tulip.c driver (witch was no good) the light was up on the card.
Also, if i do:
cat /proc/interrupts
3: 1 XT-PIC xirc2ps_cs
11: 2 XT-PIC ...
PCI to Cardbus bridge with ZV support, ESS Maestro 2E

cat /proc/ioports
0300-030f:xirc2ps_cs
1000-10ff PCI cardbus #14
1400-14ff PCI cardbus #14

ifconfig eth0 no ip address but it sees the mac addr.

could it be the tcp/ip that is not bind in some ways?

An other test:
The graphic config screen Network configurator tells me that the card cannot be initialised,
i gave IO: 0300-030f and irq: 3 as in /proc/ioports and interrupts
