Re: Installation problem w/ ASUS S82000

I just had a similar problem myself.  If you look in the archives for
this list for december, the last email by "dude" has a fairly detailed
answer.  Basically, the system does a scan whenever it starts cardmgr.
If there is a resource conflict in the areas it scans, it will hang.
I had to edit /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and tell it to exclude some 
resources.  Which ones I think is specific to your particular system,
on mine I had to add the line:
exclude irq 5
so it would not conflict with the sould card.

To do this, boot into the installation using the DVD-ROM, and select
the option  "execute the shell".  mount your harddisk with a command
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt
(this assumes that you are using the first partition on the first IDE
drive as your root partition)  Then cd /mnt/etc/pcmcia/ and use the
ae editor to change config.opts.  Maybe somebody else can comment as 
to which resources it would be good to exclude.

Hope this helps
