  No, that's why I hate 'em. Dell turned a perfectly decent combo card
into a WinNIC. Toth, if you look at my headers you'll notice that
binary-only drivers are NOT my problem. AFAIK, nobody has ever gotten
the Dell version to run stable in Linux.

  I prefer D-Link or Xircom for pcmcia NICs, anyhow.

  If you want a real bargain, go to http://www.mchoward.com and get
their phone number. Call, ask for Mel or Bob, tell them I told you
about the D-Link PCMCIA adapters. They, M.C. Howard Electronics, just
got a whole raft of surplus D-Link DFE-680TXD CardBus 10/100 units in.
Mel's selling them - card only, no box or dox - for $15 each. They'll
ship, too. I don't know if there's a minimum on shipping.
 Notes on the web say the D-Link is supported by the tulip_cb module,
but I can't verify yet. As usual, I started out to build the module I
need, deciding to get the newer version of pcmcia_cs sources, then
decided to get the new kernel while I'm at it. I'll let y'all know in
an hour or so.
  I LIKE those guys at MC Howard. It's the only computer store I know
of in Austin that still uses a soldering iron. They've built SIMMs for
me for my RS6Ks....
