to be honest i'm not exactly sure of all the answers (eg. is it an extension
to pcmcia or an entirely new protocol/standard?).  my laptop has cardbus
pcmcia slots.  my xircom real port is not cardbus compatible.  but you can't
use a cardbus card in a non-cardbus slot.

don't know sorry.

no problem.  i think i just stumbled across it one day and made a mental
note to remember it :)
