Yes! The pcmcia works! Used the 2.0.9 pcmcia, forced the architecture to
get it installed, did a make-kpkg modules_image and a dpkg-buildpackage to
get pcmcia-cs. Had to fix all the control files to read alpha instead of
i386. Made an init file by copying the default one. Installed, default
settings, and plugged in a modem. "Beep" cu -l /dev/modem. Whoo-hoo!
Now the clock moved forward 30 years and hwclock is broken in 2.2, and I
have no text console still, but we are getting there.
In 1869 the waffle iron was invented for people who had wrinkled waffles.
