Love the ease of installing and the look of Debian on my Zaurus, thanks to ZDevil's guide. This is a great forum with loads of good tips, guides and helpful people.
I'm still pretty new to configuring things on a Zaurus, in particular setting up a network connection.

I had no luck trying to set-up the same Buffalo LPC-CF-CLT network LAN card using Zubuntu on my sl-c1000. Anyone else use one of these?
Since installing Debian I've been trying to set up the network but I'm having problems with the same card again or more accurately with my own lack of understanding!

With Cacko the card just connects but I want to venture out and explore other ROMs/Distros.

Went over my previous post and still could get further than both lights lit up on the network card but no connection.

Is there a guru or someone who's overcome the same or similar problem and can offer some advice?

I don't know if the device is 'lo' or 'eth0' or 'eth1'.
Same connection as my desktop box which requires no configuration, so presumably it is not static.... but I don't know.

Zaurus:~# ifconfig
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b ) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b )

Zaurus: ~# modprobe pxa2xx
FATAL: Mobuke pxa2xx not found.

Zaurus:~# pccardctl ident
Socket 0:
product info: "BUFFALO", "LPC-CF-CLT", "R01", ""

I'm just taking a stab in the dark here, as I have little knowledge on this topic. Assuming you don't need to load a driver, you should be able to plug in an ethernet cable and run
dhclient eth0

I'm going to assume that the pxa2xx stuff is built-in to the kernel, hence the module not loading.

One thing that might help is the output of "dmesg" after plugging in the card (cleanest way to do it is reboot, then plug in the card, wait a couple of seconds, then run "dmesg > somefile"; the output will be put in "somefile" for easy copying). If you want to look through it yourself, look for something at the end indicating that the card was recognized. It should be somewhat obvious.

That just about exhausts my knowledge on this matter, so I hope it helps.
