    Since the topic is pcmcia cards, maybe someone can help: my system hangs and becomes totally unresponsive whenever its tries to initialize the pcmcia card services, forcing me to reboot. The only way for me to boot is by doing an interactive startup and choosing no to initialize the pcmcia services. My distro is FC4. Thanks in advance!

    sounds like the PCMCIA services is the problem, does it freeze when you insert any other type of PCMCIA's or just this card?

    lol.... it sounds like the propor driver's arent itstalled for the pcmcia slots and have nothing to do with spacific cards the easiest way i found troubleshoot this isto get a knoppix live cd and boot that then lsmod to see vhat drivers it loaded for the pcmcia
    also check that you have hotplugging and cold plugging

    Has anyone been able to figure out which drivers to use for the PCMCIA on a presario 2100 w/ FC3? Every time I try booting Knoppix with my microsoft MN-520 that also freezes! I know its not hardware as it works fine in XP.

    I have a Compaq Presario 2170CA, a Microsoft Wireless Card, and Fedora Core 3 and experienced the same problem. I fixed it by editing /etc/pcmcia/config.opts by changing/adding the following lines:

    #include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
    include port 0xfd00-0xfdff, port 0xfc00-0xfcff
    #include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
    #include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff
    include memory 0x80000000-0x80000fff, memory 0xffeff000-0xffefffff
    include memory 0xfbeff000-0xffefefff, memory 0x000d7000-0x000d7fff

    # High port numbers do not always work...
    # include port 0x1000-0x17ff

    # Extra port range for IBM Token Ring
    # include port 0xa00-0xaff

    exclude irq 1
    exclude irq 2
    exclude irq 3
    exclude irq 4
    exclude irq 5
    exclude irq 6
    #exclude irq 7
    exclude irq 8
    exclude irq 9
    exclude irq 10
    exclude irq 11
    exclude irq 12
    exclude irq 13
    exclude irq 14
    exclude irc 15

    Leaving only one irq available (IRQ 7). You may wish to use a different IRQ depending on your configuration.
