PCMCIA USB storage boot order


Hi,

I finally was able to install linux on my USB harddrive. I used the method somewhere else in the forum by putting the root partition on the internal drive.

Now, my problem:

I have installed on a laptop. The laptop has a drive of 5 gb, so quite small. I have an external USB drive of 160 gb. Now I have my root on the internal and the /var /usr /home on the external.

My laptop has a standard usb 1.1 and I put in a PCMCIA usb 2.0

The funny thing is I cannot boot linux when the drive is connected to the USB 2.0
When I boot from USB 1.1 I have an USB 2.0 in my system manager.

What happens is, the boot process first checks the USB ports and then checks for PCMCIA, so USB 2.0 becomes available after boot.

Is there a way to change the boot order? So first initialize PCMCIA en then USB support?


Thanx
