Mandriva 2006 installation on laptop HP pavillion, Kernel panic while detecting PCMCI

I have got message "kernel panic" during installation of mandriva 2006 on my hp pavillion laptop. Last that I see on the screen is "Detecting PCMCIA slot".
To finish installation I use "noauto" options which disable any hardware detection process during installation and after that installation completed without any error except - I need to install and configure evey my hardware (mouse, network, video, sound etc)by hand what is not very easy for me (I am newby in the Linux). But I did it and now I have got a problem with ACPI - you can see the description in other topic here "HP laptop ZE4125 ACPI problem".
I think that the option "noauto" didn't detect my acpi and I am not able to configure it by my self.
The question is: "Is there any other option for installation that disable detection ONLY of selected hardware not everything, may be I need to disable detection of PCMCIA slot"
Any idea, guys?
