Description of problem:
I'm _actually_ running Roswell on a Eurocom notebook w/ a 3Com PCI
3CCFE575BT PCMCIA Ethernet adapter. During boot, the networking starts
showing expected errors and delayed network initialization. When PCMCIA
starts, the system beeps as it starts the card but it does not acquire a
network address via DHCP.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Once booted, I can see with /sbin/ifconfig that eth0 is not started. I
eject the card, reinsert it, and check ifconfig again quickly. I can see
eth0 appear then when I check it again, eth0 is down.

If i do '/sbin/ifup eth0' then the network comes up correctly with a
dynamically assigned address. (This works properly whether I reinsert the
card or not).

This should be fixed with the rawhide initscripts (6.14 or so)...
