Thanks for explaining that. Thanks Neil, too. It was always awkward, the
shifting devicenames under 2.4. So this solves that. Great!

That was suse actually, a distro which I really like(d?) but one has got to
move on. The thing with suse and redhat is, once you _need_ to compile
something because there is no binary for it, then the trouble really starts.
Good luck getting a promisc-cabable driver for a wifi card into suse without
hours and hours trial and error. Well, sometimes you're lucky.

I'm almost ready to reboot to 2.6.9 but a little (but potential showstopper-)
problem showed up. I have two wired NICs, both of them 3Com575TX. (not a
typo, it is a different card than the 3C574 or 3C589 cards) (Cardbus, 100TX)
I know that I need(ed) the 3c575_cb module for it under 2.4. The thing is,
that came with pcmcia-cs, not with the kernel. This new kernel has the pcmcia
built-in but it seems this driver was deprecated; it just isn't there.
Now chances are it is merged into something else, but not knowing gives me the
creeps. No network -> no nothing. No emerge that is. No emerge no fixing.
And I have no other brand laying around (except for wireless but that's not
proven to work yet)
Anyone know what happened to this infamous 3C575 driver ?
A grep for 575 in Documentation/* (including Changes) yields nothing at all.
The same in .config by the way.
The card is great otherwise, never any problems with it
