Running Mandrake 9.2...recently got 2.6.2 working on my computer.

The issues are two-fold:

One, my PCMIA card does not work, and I do not know why.
Does anyone know of any issues with the kernel?

Two, in an attempt of a friend to fix this, he recompiled the kernel
with a previously modulized wireless option as part of the kernel...
Since then my hardwire ethernet has not worked.

I noticed that both my wireless and hardwire are set to eth0, but
don't know how to change this. (I suspect it is part of the problem).

Any ideas for how to return my ethernet to working?
