PCMCIA probe causes lockup


I am running Slack 8.1, on a Compaq Armada M700 and when the pcmcia card service probes the slots, the computer locks up. I found a resolution to this but the changers are for Redhat. They were to:

PCMCIA
The RH distribution contains the PCMCIA stuff, and it works although I had a few troubles. Reading the PCMCIA howto we can see that sometimes the IRQ probe that the PCMCIA driver does hangs the machine. This appears to affect some machines and not others. To fix this, edit the /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file to show the following:

PCMCIA=yes
PCIC=i82365
PCIC_OPTS="irq_list=9,10" # any 2 free IRQ's will do
CORE_OPTS=

To set up a network card, edit the IP numbers into

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Where would i go to try and do comprable settings in slackware.

Thanks

Perhaps the following files and locations will help.

The pcmcia startup script is /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia and the config files are in /etc/pcmcia directory. (Suggest reviewing config.opts file)

The network startup and config is in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

Good luck.
