    Laptop PCMCIA Ethernet card config on Damn Small Linux


    I have a toshiba satellite 1555 CDS laptop pc I want to run Damn Small Linux on. The pc specs are:

    - AMD 380mhz k6
    - 32mb Ram
    - 4 gig hard drive

    I can get dsl to run fine on the machine, but when it boots I have to run dsl nopcmcia Any other way I try to boot, dsl will hang after detecting the cpu (failsafe also works)

    I have a pcmcia ethernet card I need to use to get on the net. The laptop doesnt have a built in ethernet adapter. The card is a Etherlink 3 LAN pc card #3C589D

    Is there anyway to configue this card after I skip the detection on boot. I was reading this link:

    http://www.icewalkers.com/Linux/Howt....html#new-card

    and when I run cardmgr I get cardmgr[472] no pcmcia driver in proc/devices

    I am completely lost on this one. Can anyone help me get on the web?
