Okay, my failure... I found a few things in the hotplug-scripts and
changed them, and now hotplug is bringing up and down my network devices.
Just one last thing: Once upon a time (under Windows) my PCMCIA network
card ran with full speed (100 Mbit/s). I don't know how windows did it,
because even on the card is written 16 and PC-Card, which means that is is
a 16-Bit card (and linux detects it as such) and cannot reach more than
about 10 Mbit/s. Any Idea how windows did it and if this is possible in
linux? It's a Wlinx Fast Ethernet Card 10/100M Type FE1500.
