Question Bridging support and PCMCIA

I was wondering if there was any reason why bridging should not work with PCMCIA cards. I am using my old laptop as a home server and need it to do bridging (between wireless and fixed networks). I followed the bridging howto and everything seems to "almost work" without actually bridging between my 2 PC-card ethernet interfaces. The bridging howto said something about telling the kernel that I have more than one ethernet interface for it to discover during boot, which I did do, but since I dont fully understand what I am doing here it is unclear to me whether this would help with PC-card ethernet interfaces since they would not be available until quite late in the boot process.

Does anyone have bridging working with PC-card ethernet? If so, is there any big secret?

I have kernel 2.2.14 and pcmcia v 3.1.8

Best regards,

Jeremy Cook
