ibm 240 pcmcia problems on install


Hi all, hope someone can help, heres my lil problem.

After getting fed up with windows on my ibm thinkpad (240) I found this page...

worldwideweb.physics.ohio-state.edu/~peetz/thinkpad.html

(sorry mr admin, it said i cant post links?!?!)

I have tryed to get this to work, some links are dead so I went ahead and used both the debian laptop disks and the slackware disks ( I do not have cdrom and I want to do an ftp install) and got the base system on and it boots fine, the problem is the pcmcia slot.
I have 3 pcmcia cards, netgear wifi (wg511) generic t10/10 and a trust t10/100 all 32 bit (same as my slot)
The disks (network and pcmcia ) that you use after the root disks install dont pic up my card (any all tryed) or find the pcmcia slot.

desperatly nead to get this running. If anyone knows how this can be sorted, or if you have had other similar problems please get contact.

Btw slackware disks didnt detect either....

Thanks
