Question CE3B-100BTX, a Dell Latitude XPiCD, and Mandrake 6 

Forum: Xircom PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues

Hello. I recently bought a Xircom 10/100 Ready CreditCard Ethernet PCMCIA adapter. The number on the back is CE3B-100BTX. It doesn't seem to work in my notebook, a Dell Latitude XPiCD with a P166MMX, and 64M of ram, stock mandrake 6 kernel 2.2.9 (haven't been able to get 2.2.16 onto it yet without losing sound support), and the stock PCMCIA-cs package.

The network is a simple cat5 crossover cable to a USB-to-Ethernet adapter installed in my Win95(OSR2.1 w/USB Supp). I can't get either box to even ping each other.

Any Suggestions? Other than Sneakernet(and lots of floppys), my hands are kind of tied.

Thank you for any consideration,
