pc cards don't work on FC 2.6.5 on my Inspiron



I have only a basic amount of knowledge about linux, but
was hoping (as I should never) for an easy install of at
least the most basic components I needed to work.  Several
years ago, I got RH7 (and then 8) to work on my thinkpad,
all except sound and modem, but was happy with that.

Now I got everything to work, except an internet
connection!  I have tried 2 different pc cards: 
3com 3CCFE574BT    (it's 5V 16bit) FC picked the driver
3c574_cs

Xircom realport REM56G-100 ethernet+modem  (5V 16bit) FC
picked the driver xirc_2ps_cs
I also tried xircom_cb just in case
(the xircom is the one I would rather have working but
would settle for the 3com)

Neither of these works.  I get the error:
device eth<0,1,2> does not seem to be present
(0,1,2 for each of the driver configs above)

I've been looking around the internet for ways to fix or at
least diagnose this.  I did a lspci -v and it shows for
related devices:
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX
AGP bridge (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])

     I/O window 1: 00000000-00000003 [disabled]
     16-bit legacy interface ports at 0001

Nothing else in that message says [disabled]. (I had to
write that out by hand b/c ...well I have no connection and
no floppy drive)

I don't know if this would also help but here is
/proc/interrupts:
0:  4063175    XT-PIC   timer
1:      959    XT-PIC   i8042
2:        0    XT-PIC   cascade
5:        0    XT-PIC   ESS Maestro
8:        1    XT-PIC   rtc
9:        1    XT-PIC   acpi
11:       0    XT-PIC   uhci_hcd
12:   14954    XT-PIC   i8042
14:   29558    XT-PIC   ide0
15:   42727    XT-PIC   ide1


>From the lspci message, it seems like maybe the problem is
with the pci bridge and if that worked, everything else
would?  Or is it really that I just don't have the correct
drivers for either card?

Finally, one last note, I did a custom install because I do
have particular packages I want installed that aren't
standard (like latex), and some things, like ftp server,
but not samba or other kinds of servers.  I hope any
choices I made during the install of packages didn't make a
difference here.

Any insight is enormously appreciated.
