FC6t1 and rawhide rescue: Is pcmcia network install OK ?

I am trying the FC6t1 installer for network install (diskboot.iso or 
rescuecd.iso, or today's rescuecd.iso {80610 KB 06/30/2006 08:33:00 
AM}), I do lang-eng,keyb=us,method=ftp (or nfs/http), I get No driver 
found: Select Driver.
The PCCard (ethernet,wired) module will load according to VT3, but I 
then get asked again to select driver.

The two cards are: {notebook is hp omnibook 4150, pentiumII}
- Xircom Creditcard ethernet+modem 33.6 CEM33 {xirc2ps_cs driver previously}
- SMC etherez 8020BT/T {

I haven't used either of these two pccard ethernet adaptors before when 
trying to install FC5 or 4 (but both operate with FC5), so I do not know 
- a kernel module load problem discussed a few days ago might still be 
causing issues. {wait a bit!}
- it should work but requires module arguments {offered in selection}
- it should just work -> file a bug

Some info from VT's:
: modules to insert pcmcia_core yenta_socket pcmcia
: load module set done
: modules to insert yenta_socket
: load module set done
<6>cs: IO port probe 0x100-0x3af: excluding 0x120-0x127 0x220-0x22f 
0x378-0x37f 0x388-0x38f
<6>cs: warning: no high memory space available!
<6>cs: IO port probe {identical to previous}

Then select the driver:
: modules to insert xirc2ps_cs
: loaded xirc2ps_cs from /modules.modules.cgz
: inserted /tmp/xirc2ps_cs.ko
: load module set done

But then back to driver select screen. VT2 is not yet a usable command
