J720 - PC Card works great under linux, not so much under WinCE

Go figure out!
Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I guess it was supposed to work out-of-the-box.

I bough today a "vintage" Link One FPC-0102TX PC Card (16 bits) for cheap. It was kinda of hard to insert into the device and figure out how to use it.
After inserting it into the machine, WinCE asked me about IP configurations, but never managed to acquire a IP (maybe my home network is the culprit here). So I decided to try my Debian-on-CF install. And it worked flawlessly!

No configuration, no nothing. Just apt-getting here. Is there any configuration step to take under WinCE?

Also, I was unsure where to post this.

Sure, debian has a generic driver for NS8390 chips [ http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/man/pcnet_cs.4.html ], CE doesn't. Find a driver and happy days.
