I seem to remember when I had a laptop that I used a pcmcia network card
with that it mapped to a pci slot also. I know it seems odd for the bus
to map that way, but it did.
It also used the hotplug system, for pulling the nic out without having
to shut the system down, if you needed to swap pcmcia devices.
I suspect that is was a USB pci device if the links are traced down
completely. I don't have a laptop to check that with any more.
