Exclamation error installing Linux


I installed MandrakeLinux 9.2 on my computer. It worked fine but when i boot up Linux it loads until it gets to Boot or Load (i forgot which it says) pcmcia. then it just stops, i let it stay there for about 7 hours and it didnt move. So does anyone have any advice or know what to do. thanks in advanced.

hmmmm...It's a kernel module option and when you rebuild the kernel you can turn that off....I'm not sure if they give you that option when drake is initially installed though...I don't quite remember...
