With 2.4 kernels the 3c574_cs driver is in drivers/net/pcmcia/
Nothing in this directory contains the "556" string

With the 2.4 kernel, I definetely do have yenta_socket loaded.
OTOH, lspci does not see the card. Only sees the cardbus device.
To display info about the PC cards I need to use cardctl.
With a recent 2.6 kernel, I have to give it another shot -- ie. run
another install or better boot a live CD.
But do you mean that with recent 2.6 kernels pcmcia nic's are handled
like any other PCI nic?
