Redhat 8.0 Bootup Freezing


I installed Redhat 8.0 about 5 weeks ago, and it has been working perfectly. Last night I was attempting to get my Dell TrueMobile 1150 Series Wireless LAN MiniPCI Card to see my home network; I added a new wireless network profile and was setting it all up, and was looking at some help info for it when the entire process essentially crashed -- I couldn't kill any apps, and the CPU usage was 101%. Sadly, I had to kill the computer the old-fashioned way, with the power button. When I try to boot back up now, it freezes every time when it gets around to starting pcmcia:

Starting pcmcia: Yenta IRQ list 06b8, PCI irq11
Socket status: 30000006
Yenta IRQ list 06b8, PCI irq11
Socket status: 30000006
Yenta IRQ list 0000, PCI irq11
Socket status: 30000010

At this point, the bootup process freezes. My thoughts are that, since I added an additional wireless network profile for my eth1 (I already had one, but I attempted to add a new one), the IRQ's are getting all confused in some manner ... needless to say, I am a bit confused. I think I can fix it if I can just boot up all the way, but I cannot figure out how to bypass the pcmcia starting.

I'm running GRUB, and my boot commands currently are:

root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-24.8.0.img

I've tried adding nopcmcia, nopcmcia=yes, NOPCMCIA=yes ... onto the kernel line -- none of them disable the pcmcia. Any ideas?

'nopcimcia' should work. You may also disable it in bios, boot, change th settings and then enable again.

In fact, you think that would work. Apparently I have other pcmcia protocols aside from my eth1 wireless adapter. According to my WinXP Pro. partition, there are Texas Instruments PCI-4451 CardBus Controllers -- don't ask me what they're doing for me, but there are 2 of them.

I disabled the Wireless card in BIOS, in addition to putting in my GRUB commands:

root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi nopcmcia (all this on one line)
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-24.8.0.img

This time when it booted up, it only printed:

Starting pcmcia: Yenta IRQ list 06b8, PCI irq11
Socket status: 30000006
Yenta IRQ list 06b8, PCI irq11
Socket status: 30000006

at which point the boot again froze. I'm still working at it.
