I have been looking at PCMCIA support lately as I just got my own laptop.
While the Xircom Ethercard is not at the least supported by whatever stuff
the RedHat Linux distribution uses in its install setup, it is listed as a
supported card in the documents for the pcmcia-cs package for linux, and
there is an aparently apropriate module for it too, so the travails to
port to NetBSD are probably not quite so bad.
