I've got the same problem Dan. IBM 560X laptop with Xircom CEM56 PCMCIA
card that can connect to either a network or modem. Card seems to be
installed o.k. as it shows up under Hardware Browser in KDE 2.2, but I
can't do anything with it. There's definitely more configuring that needs
to be done, but I just can't find it, and I've already spent hours on the
MAN's and HOWTO's.
Hope you have better luck. I'll post here if I find anything.
