looking in /var/log/daemon.log after I insert it, it says it's an unsupported card.
I forgot I'm letting Blythe borrow a PCMCIA network card that I used to use in my Windows CE handheld, so I'm going to go pick that up and hope it works.
But it's summer... so it's okay. I like challenges. It'll feel good when it's all working. I knew this was gonna suck.
