That's too sad ;( If you don't see "eth0" in ifconfig, there may be a
compatibility issue between SuSE 10.0 and the PCMCIA NIC.

If you want to set up a static IP on one of your PCs(like the laptop) in
the future, pick one of IPs within 192.168.1.52-192.168.1.254 because
you said you assigned 50 IPs for DHCP at the Linksys
(192.168.1.2-192.168.1.51).
For example,
-Linksys: 192.168.1.1/24 (DHCP server)
-PC-1 : 192.168.1.2(via DHCP)
-PC-2 : 192.168.1.3(via DHCP)
-PC-3 : 192.168.1.4(via DHCP)
-Laptop : 192.168.1.52(static)

This is the way to keep all devices happy campers.
