Still problems with Xircom pcmcia NIC in a Mandrake 9.1 box

hi there, I checked a nice thread that worked out as a nice started for me trying to solve my problem with my mandrake 9.1 distro. since Im a newbie I tried to follow step by step solutions posted here but none of them seem to help me because:

1) I could not find the package pcmcia-X11-cs in my distro CD (which I got from a magazine - can it be incomplete??). In fact, I could not find any of the packages pcmcia-cs and pcmcia-X11-cs in the 'search' results returned by the mandrake package manager (under KDE). The package pcmcia-cs I could find in the distro CD but not the pcmcia-X11-cs (I suppose the package pcmcia-cs was already installed, since the pcmcia service was started and running -- but the Xircom not working).

2) I could not find the kernel source to compile under /usr/src/linux<version>, even after installing it using the package manager... what are the exact names of the kernel packages in Madrake 9.1? I found one for SECURE machines, one for SPM machine and one another which I forgot the name of it but I installed all of the three packages, just in case.

Does anyone out there has a clue of what could be the problem with my Xircom NIC and my Toshiba (Pentium 200Mhz, 64Mb RAM, 1Gb HD) laptop?

Well, Im feeling sad and would appreciate a lot your comments!

In fact, with previous mandrake distributions it worked out fine, but this one is really problematic... thanks for the tipregarding the complete code! Meanwhile, I will keep trying to figure out what is going on here....
