I can say that I have the exact same laptop as you and finally
configured it to work with my 3c589D. I started with a vanilla RH 4.2
install. I am running on 2.0.30 following the instructions in the
Modules/PCMCIA howtos about how to recompile the kernel with network
support, but without a networking device. I then downloaded the newest
PCMCIA source from ftp://cb-iris.stanford.edu/pub/pcmcia/ and installed
it. No real configuration changes were needed. The only problem I had
was that the 3c589 was using IRQ 3 and that conflicted with the internal
Toshiba modem. One workaround was to /sbin/rmmod 3c589_cs and then use
the modem. The solution was to put in a few lines in the
/etc/conf.modules file to exempt certain IRQs.
I also have X running in 800x600 w/ 64k colors on XFree86 3.3.
You can mail me directly if you have any questions.
