Booting USB PCMCIA with single pen drive
I have a laptop with a builtin USB1.1 port that I can boot from. I also have a USB 2.0 PCMCIA card. I've found a lot of information on how to use a two-stage boot process to boot linux on a PCMCIA USB port. However, they all reference using a boot floppy or CD as the initial boot media. Is it possible to initially boot using the 1.1 port, and have the boot process pause after the PCMCIA drivers have been loaded, and move the USB stick to the USB 2.0 port on the PCMCIA card? It seems that it would be feasible since the kernel is running out of RAM, but I figured I would ask here before I start experimenting.
