Thanks for the tip. I was not successful to find out the
offending IRQ, nevertheless I removed both the start & the
stop link for the PCMCIA service in the rc2.d & rc0.d
I know this is not the final solution, but I'm a step
further. Today I'll try the suggestion from Jo Geraerts
about changing the port-range.
I'll report mz findings to the list.
Thanks once more for the helpful suggestions.
