    1st boot failiure PCMCIA

    Hi everybody,
    I'm running Redhat 9 on my Amilo D CY23 notebook, therefore I have to turn off my computer every time when I'm not using it. ( to prevent overheating )
    Each time when I try to turn it on it freezes at loading PCMCIA:

    starting PCMCIA: Yenta irq list 0218, pci irq10
    socket status: 30000006

    The only way to avoid this is to start clicking ctrl+C, ctril+B and all kind of different keys, than I have to log on, log off and make a hot restart in order to boot the system normally.
    After that everything works fine I can restart safelly if I want to use Win XP or do whatever I want but not in the first time.
    Please explain step by step what do I have to do? ( I'm a newbie to Linux )

    Thanks in advance

    P.S Just saw it

    When the system loads normally the following message appears:

    starting PCMCIA: Yenta irq list 0218, pci irq10
    socket status: 30000006
    Yenta irq list 0218, pci irq 11

    hope this could give you a clue...

    When I was running RH 9 I never had this issue with my Gateway laptop. Are you saying its RH specific? If so what brings you to this belief?

    I dont know if this is a Redhat problem. I'm just saying what kind of linux I use. Could be a hardware problem...I'm not sure

    I think I have solved the issue.
    I turned off the PCMCIA service from all the booting levels ( 3 4 5 ) and it worked.
