:Somehow the stuff in rc that handles pcmcia card ejection and insertion
:isn't doing it's thing. Sure enough the card gets detected and initialized,
:but it isn't starting the network or dhclient.
:Test case:
:1. Boot up, leave network pcmcia card out of the slot.
:2. Insert card, hear some nice beeps. Tail /var/log/messages to see if it
:gets detected and stuff.
:3. Monitor ifconfig to see if it gets an IP number (either from dhclient or
:With a world/kernel as of last friday afternoon (CEST), the interface
:doesn't come up *at all*.

    Hmm.  The RC stuff could simply be some RCNG hookups that we haven't
    made.  Does it start pccardd up?  If not try starting it manually.

    Maybe it's time for me to install DragonFly on my own laptop :-)
