Subject description: How to get either one to work?
 

I am presently trying to revive an aging
Dell Inspiron 8000 Laptop. There's lots
of challenges here but one pretty basic one
and that's the Network(eth0) connection.

I have two devices. They are:

SMC: SMC2208USB USB adapter

Xircom: CBE2-100 PCMCIA adapter

I've fiddled with the listing of various
network device drivers on puppy-215CE-Final.iso
and was not successful to get it to set up on the
network ( DHCP ). The SMC adapter is an automatic
HotPlug on both Ubuntu 7.04 and Mandriva 2007.0(1)

Thanks for any suggestions here.
