pcmcia card and pppoe
I just installed linux (Mandrake 9.1) on my Compaq Armada E500. I got everything working except the network card. It won't auto-detect the network card in harddrake but it does show the info about the card.
The card is a Xircom RealPort RBE-100 10-100 PCMCIA CardBus.
It says on sourceforge that the card is supported with the xircom_tulip_cb drivers.

Ifconfig eth0 shows:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:10:A4:B6:13:EC
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4400

My ISP uses pppoe and I've downloaded access manager type stuff (start/statue/stop pppoe shell scripts and a few pppoe exes) from the isp but otherwise they don't provide any tech support for linux.
The deal is the network card is hooked up to an external ADSL modem which is then hooked into the router or anything and the IP/gateway are assigned by the server.

thanks alot for any help!
