pcmcia card detect

Anyone have any idea why my pcmcia card show's up twice.
Would this be part of the reason my cardmgr hang's my system on most every reboot, till I disabled it?
It used to show up twice when I was using window's too.

I have a wireless pcmcia card in a bridge in a pc. It was an interrupt problem but I banged my head on the wall trying to get it to go because this stuff is all plug and pray. I don't remember this particular problem but I remember it freezing until I removed the card...

I'm not sure how the Mandrake startup scripts work, but you need to pass irq_mode=x to the i82365 module, where x equals 1 or 0. You want your startup scripts to call 'modprobe i82365 irq_mode=x' Try both 1 and 0.

In Slackware, it's located in the /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia script. I think Mandrake is sysv, so it should be started from a script in the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d directory.

I hope this makes sense.
