while booting, you'll see 'press I to enter interactive startup'. Press I, and then say Y to everything except the pcmcia thing. You'll be able complete the boot this way. Once you're logged in, go to mandrake control center, and then look for draxservices. There you can specify which services to start at boottime. Disable pcmcia from starting.
