Thanks for the reply taz. The card type is PCMCIA type II. I used a 3Com LAN PCMCIA card to get the OS loaded. Linux recognized and installed the drivers for it ok. I've recently noticed that when I switch to the CDROM PC card and have the hardware detected through Hardrake, it gets listed as an unknow device. Here is what is said:
Bus Type: PCMCIA
Informations: This device hasn't been identified by HardDrake, please send '/proc/bus/*' files and this device ID '00322704' to: email@example.com
As far as I know this is the card that comes with the CD-ROM
Thanks again for the reply.
