On a Siemens pcd-5nd with 3com megahertz 3ccfem556b pcmcia card ( listed
as supported in hardware compat list ) I can't perform a network
install. The system had freebsd before, so it's working fine.

Some messages from alt+f3 console :
intel pcic probe: cirrus .. isa-to-pcmcia at port .., 2 sockets
loaded  i82365 found ..
loaded ds

that doesn't find modules, here are the messages:

in phoebe3.


I've installed Mandrake 9.0 now on it, it worked great, so I'm filling this bug.
Mandrake install detected both pcmcia network card and pcmcia CD-ROM.
What more info should I provide to help this work with Red Hat too?
