Question 3com pcmcia + Tecra 8000 + col 2.3 = no network ability 

Forum: PCMCIA on Toshiba laptops

I have tried many modifications to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts 
but no luck getting my eth0 interface up.  I can't configure
the eth0 interface, cuz it is not recognized.  I have tried
to root out any irq conflicts but I'm copying a known good
config file, and no luck.  The init script hangs when loading
modules, so I think It might be a problem there.  I'd 
appreciate it if someone could help me out on this one.

If the PCMCIA init script hangs, then the network card is irrelevant. Your bug report doesn't include much information that would help in diagnosing your problem; some questions would include, what system log messages do you get from the PCMCIA drivers? And what version of the PCMCIA drivers are you using? And does the system still hang if you boot with the card not inserted?

The PCMCIA-HOWTO has a long chapter about diagnosing startup problems like this. That may also give you some good clues.
