Re: nic config [was: [tlug] RH7.2 - no linuxconf?]

thanks sajjad, and sorry for having misspelled your name.

now i've figured that the pcmcia cardmgr looks for the module file whenever
it gets a hotplug event. if i compile the driver into the kernel, however,
it cannot find the module and the network pc card will not be working. so it
seems that some drivers just cannot be compiled into the kernel (like pcmcia
card drivers) and must be available as modules.

right or wrong?
