Dave,

Never in a million years would I have guessed that!
My config.opts file contained:

   include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff, memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff

I changed it to:

   include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff

and the card now gets detected.

However, in order to successfully ping another
device on the network, I have to "ifconfig eth0 down"
(which deletes the default route)and "ifconfig eth0 up".
With this done, my machine can communicate.  Any ideas
on why I have to manually down/up the interface?

Something else that seems odd is that while the
label on the physical card itself says it's a RBE,
'cardctl ident' says:

Socket 0:
  no product info available
Socket 1:
  product info: "Xircom", "CardBus Ethernet II 10/100", "CBEII-10/100", "1.03"
  manfid: 0x0105, 0x0103
  function: 6 (network)

I thought CBE wasn't supported.  But, I'm not complaining!

Many thanks for your help.
Darin
