Sad 3CCFE575CT-D was working, but now not!

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to get a 3CCFE575CT-D working on a Dell Inspiron 3800 running Red Hat 6.1 (kernal 2.2.12-20).

I've installed pcmcia-cs-3.1.14, as the original pcmcia with Red Hat didn't support the CT.

I added PCIC_OPTS="do_scan=0" to the /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file.

After playing around with various network settings, I somehow managed to get it working! Ping/telnet/netscape worked fine etc...

However, I've just rebooted and it now won't work again, and I can't remember the exact setup I had.

I'm concerned that linuxconf may be causing some problems, as some parameters may "interfere with the PCMCIA subsystem", as outlined in the HOWTO. I've tried changing the /etc/pcmcia/network.opts as suggested, but it doesn't seem to work.

I would be grateful if someone knows exactly what needs to be in the following files, using the pcmcia-cs-3.1.14 network script, to get it working again!

/etc/pcmcia/network.opts

/etc/sysconfig/network

/etc/HOSTNAME

/etc/hosts

/etc/resolv.conf

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

(this last one seems to be generated by linuxconf)

Any other combinations???? Anything I've left out??? Could linuxconf be messing it up???

Thanks for any help!!
