Sony Vaio 505TR


I have recently purchased a used Sony 505tr laptop.  I am a regular
Slackware user, but I'd like to try out Debian on it.  Can anybody give me
some tips?

I have successfully managed to boot off of the official 2.2 cd, using
'boot: linux ide1=0x180,0x386' which causes the Sony PCGA-CD51/A cdrom
drive to be mapped to /dev/hdc.

In particular, I am somewhat confused about the "Configure Device Drivers"
and "Configure PCMCIA Support" sections.  Do I actually need to do
anything there?  If so, which ones should I select?  I have the floppy
drive, the port replicator, the cdrom drive, and a Linksys ethernet card.

Are there any other issues I need to be aware of?
