Setting up network interfaces when they are inserted


Is it possible to automate the initialisation of pcmcia/pccard nics when
they are inserted at runtime?

If not, how would one do it?

Is there a way for the kernel to tell a userland process when a nic is
attached or detached? (Other than polling it...)

Ultimately i would like to do the equivilent of /etc/netstart but for
only one interface whenever one is inserted.
