I tried that. When I tried to ping the gateway I got a:
ping: socket: protocol family not supported
Since I receive the same result whether I use eth0 or eth3 (which doesn't or 
a least shouldn't exist) I'll have to assume that the PC Card hacks are not 
working properly. Are there any tools already ported/written for hurd that I 
could use to give a bit more info about my ethernet interfaces etc to help me 
see what's wrong.

Thanks for your help,
Jonathan Hunt
