OK, so I've tried to look at the install docs and the FAQ, and I can't get
the system to the point of loading the Intel/Xircom PCMCIA ethernet card.

If I use the standard boot-laptop, it doesn't show the network card. So I
followed the instructions and loaded a kernel onto the HD. It wanted
/dev/console, so I made a /dev directory and ran MAKEDEV. Now it says
"init: not found" and panics. I tried building my own current laptop
kernel with the PCIC lines on the FAQ and I have the same problem.

Am I using the wrong kernel? Anyone have any hints?
