1. Introductions
  This document briefly describes how to use the PCMCIA/CardBus LAN cards
  in a Linux operating system. To make use of the PCMCIA/CardBus LAN cards,
  you need to install the PCMCIA Card Services which responds to card
  insertion and removal events, loading and unloading drivers on demand.

  Chapter two discusses the installation of the PCMCIA Card Services as
  well as the configuration of LAN cards.

2. Installing the PCMCIA Card Services
  Card Serives for Linux is written by David Hinds
  <dhinds@hyper.stanford.edu>. It is now a part of many of the Linux
  distributions, like RedHat and Slackware. You need to install it into
  your Linux system for use of the PCMCIA or "PC Card". The source version
  is available at <hyper.stanford.edu> in the "/pub/pcmcia" dirctory,as
  "pcmcia-cs-x.tar.gz". Replace "x" with the version number of the latest
  package.

  To install the PCMCIA Card Services, you need to install a full kernel
  source and do the following shell commands:

        #tar zxvf pcmcia-cs-x.tar.gz
        #cd pcmcia-cs-x
        #./Configure
        #make all
        #make install

  Generally, you don't need to change any default selections when you run
  "./Configure" to configure the compiled environment. But if you want to
  use Card Bus adapter, enable the (CardBus) option.

2.1 Configuration for LAN cards
  For LAN card users, you need to use editor to edit the file
  "/etc/pcmcia/network.opts" to assign IP address, netmask, gateway IP,
  nameservers,broadcast address, and etc. after the Card Services
  installation. A part of the file "network.opts" is as listed which is
  mandatory setup for the TCP/IP of your Linux machine:

        #File: /etc/pcmcia/network.opts
        #
        #
        #
        #Host's IP address, netmask, network address, broadcast address
        IPADDR="1.2.3.4"
        NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
        NETWORK="1.2.3.0"
        BROADCAST="1.2.3.255"
        #Gateway address for static routing
        GATEWAY="1.2.3.254"
        #Things to add to /etc/resolv.conf for this interface
        DOMAIN="your.domain"
        SEARCH=""
        DNS_1=""
        DNS_2=""
        DNS_3=""
        #
        #

  Remember to reboot your Linux machine for the Card Services after
  installation.

  Now you should have the PCMCIA Card Services installed correctly.
  If the Card Service is not installed properly, please see the
  "PCMCIA-HOWTO" for the details in the root directory of the Card
  Services source code to resolve installation and configuraton
  problems.
