Description of problem:
I have recently installed Redhat 9 on my IBM Thinkpad A22m. It has both a
wireless internal ethernet and a PCMCIA 3Com 10/100 Lan PC Card with XJack

If I attempt to remove the PCMCIA card I get a beep and when I reinstall it a
get the double beep. So, I assume the system is recognizing my card properly.
After getting logged in I attempt to run redhat-config-network to get
configured. The following exception occurs.

An unhandled exception has occured. Component: redhat-config-network
