I am having the problem where the CBEM56G and PCMCIA 3.1.19
are almost, but not quite, working.
The modem appears to work fine without any tweaks needed.
The ethernet card works but only after restarting some 
daemons.
When linuxconf issues the commands

/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S10network reload and
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S50inet restart

then the ethernet card works, so also it appears to me
that the CBEM56G simply needs some daemon to be restarted
and it will work with RH6.1 on the inspiron 7500.
So I tried Stefan's suggestion, adding

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 down up 

right after the specified location but it did not get 
the card working. I still have to go into linuxconf
to get the system to issue the above commands to get
it working. 

There are no error messages in /var/log/messages, tulip_cb
seems to be setting up fine. But I am way out of my league
here, is there an easier way to trigger the restart of
the network and inet daemons than using linuxconf?
Something I could just add to the rc* script?
Is there something else I should try in /etc/pcmcia/network?

Thanks,
Charlie
