Problem: Configuring a PCMCIA nic using peanut linux install 2.4.19 on Winbook XL Laptop with a
Xircom PCMCIA Card (spec's below). On install, Kudzu does not recognize a NIC. Under the
Networkcard Install feature, the PCMCIA card configuration tool does not register any errors but the
Control Center on the Peanut desktop does not recognize that a PCMCIA card is present. LISa dameon error message: "No network interface card was found on your system."

1. I have tried the following terminal commands:

2. #autonic indicates "networking card using the com20020.0 module has been detected."

3.#modprobe -l | more displays the library modules including,
"lib/modules/2.4.19/kernel/drivers/net carnet/xirc2ps_cs"

4. #ifconfig eth0 generates error message: "eth0: error fetching inteface information: Device not found"

5. #lspci -v does not list a Xircom or a generic equivalent of a PCMCIA Nic.

6. #/sbin/modprobe pcmcia_core #(Responds Error Message: "Can't locate module core")
#/sbin/modprobe xirc2ps_cs # doesn't help either.
