I have an IBM ThinkPad R40 running Slackware 11.0.0 and kernel The built-in wired interface is knackered, so I had been
using a D-Link DMF-560TXD 10/100Mb LAN card when I needed it, but that
was on an earlier kernel, possibly 2.6.16 or 18.

Now when I insert it, lights on the card seem to flicker as normal, and
the link light comes on when the cable is plugged in. However, eth1 is
not established (eth0 being the built-in wireless), and dmesg reports:

Various later kernels didn't improve the situation - e.g. recently tried with no joy.

So what's going on? Is there something I can do with my PCMCIA-related
/etc files?
