I learned from the list that to get a pcmcia network card to start on

configuration window.

Yes, I know. My PCMCIA Ethernet card is configured as NOT TO START ON BOOT. So I expected that the card works as in FC1, so after the boot the card sould be up. But it does not work since I type the command

# cardmgr

After that infact the eth0 interface is finally up. Why?
Can you help me?



This still seems very odd, but it works. What happens is when the pcmcia services get started (after the network services) the card will automatically come on line.

Give it a try. It worked for me and several others here.
