I think this may be for Richard, I just remember from the last meet
needing to post this info. From a system with debian testing (Sarge)

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# This is a list of hotpluggable network interfaces.
# They will be activated automatically by the hotplug subsystem.
mapping hotplug
        script grep
        map eth0

# The primary network interface
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet static

I've not edited any other files so this much should let it
autoconfigure eth0 on pcmcia card insertion.
