Very close. /etc/rc.d/pcmcia is a SuSE script which "knows" that some
things weren't compiled into the kernel, it "knows" that the things were
modules. I didn't want to spend a few hours learning enough bash
programming to make the thing deal with all the possibilities of 2.4 and
2.6. Instead, I changed the .config to compile PCMCIA stuff as modules (and
also some network stuff and serial stuff that are giving problems), and
munged some ".o" to ".ko" extensions. Fortunately it isn't completely
necessary to delete the ".ko" extension.

/etc/hotplug/net.agent was editable exactly as you said.

When I have time I'll hunt for the SuSE scripts hotplug scripts for serial
stuff that is still giving problems.
