INSTALL in a toshiba tecra 8200
Install goes pretty smooth and error-free. All my recommendations are provided to make your install process easier. If you do not need them, or find ways to make a certain process easier or better, please edit this document.
Use the ALSA module: snd-ymfpci
Xorg.conf, these parameters work.

alias eth0 eepro100
rc.conf, configure your network as you want.
in my case eth0 is like
eth0="192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255" gateway="default gw 192.168.0.1" ROUTES=(gateway)
if i follow other persons, it would be run with orinoco_cs. you must install pcmcia_cs and wirelesstools
The modem now appears to be working. I have not actually used it to connect as I don't have a dial up account, but I have every reason to believe that it will function correctly as it is detected and I can dial out. The drivers for the modem are available here: slmodem drivers download the latest slmodem-x.x.x.tar.gz, I am using slmodem-2.9.6 with a 2.6.4 kernel. Make sure you read the README file.
Install the HWD package. This is a nice hardware detection script. This is in the extra repo.
pacman -S hwd
