Centuries ago Nostradamus foresaw of a time when Moore, Kevin L would write:

This probably isn't any help, but I just installed 6.1 on my Libretto palmtop
and the pcmcia networking is working fine.  The boot sequence starts like
yours, I get the initial "eth0 fail" followed by the "Delaying" message (pcmcia
isn't up yet).  When pcmcia starts up, I hear the familiar "beep" and by
the time I log in, networking is up.  My first thought would be that the driver
for your card is no longer xirc2ps_cs, but that's just a WAG...
