pcmcia pcnet_cs module loads but does not set up eth1

I have a linksys phoneline network pcmcia card that i read works with the pcnet_cs module. Sure enough, i plugged it in, powered on and saw the cardmgr load the module. Now I already have an onboard LAN on my Toshiba Satellite laptop but in my current location need the use of this HPNA card. My LAN is eth0, and after reading up a little i expected that after cardmgr so easily found my card it would have set up an eth1 with the settings i put in /etc/pcmcia/network.opts. Figured all i would need to do is a ifconfig eth1 up.... needless to say that didnt work... says there is no eth1... so what did it do with my card? How can i enable the network?

some bg:
1) did cardctl ident looks great
outputs: Linksys Homelink Phoneline + 10/100 Netowkr PC Card (PCM100H1)
2) modprobe gives me no trouble with the pcnet_cs driver and i have read up and everyone seems to say this is the one i want
3) Running Slackware 9.1 and Kernel 2.6.4
4) in my network.opts, i am a lil confused about the "network address" ip is and subnet is, so i figured the address field should be, but in case i was wrong, please let me know
