Sony VAIO w/ Sony cd.  I can boot and install Windows from the cd-rom.  I can
boot from the cd and get to the point where it tries to do stuff.  Then the
pcmcia stuff quits working and I can not see cardmgr or anything else to kick
start it with.

However I do need to replace the pcmcia w/ 3.0.12, 3.0.9 gives odd i/o errors
w/ the device.  We really must do an updated slink soon (-:

Assuming I have the correct pcmcia, what is the correct procedure?
