Dear Alex. First of all, my excuses for bothering you!
Do you have any results? I mean: does it work? :)
Cannot wait to buy such a thing myself!

That's what I'm actually going to do. The main problem is that I don't
quite understand the chain I should build. The weakest part is PCMCIA. How
should I configure such a card. For certainty, I found one on the Net:
2-Port USB 2.0 High Speed CardBus PCMCIA Adapter, only $25.95
Could not find any notice about this kind of devices in PCMCIA docs.
I made also a search on google as well as checked linux-usb - without
any real success.
As what sort of device should pcmcia_cs see such a PCMCIA->USB card?
In other words: which device-driver modules are to be loaded?
Any ideas? Where I could find docs/HOWTO's/info/etc?
If I manage to get pcmcia part working, the usb one seems to be more or
less clear. It should not be too different from Flash-card readers, right?
Thanks in advance,
