okay, i installed from cdrom and got a running system. now i load
/etc/init.d/pcmcia and cardmgr reports success:

[ a whole lot of init msgs for the modules ]
cardmgr: starting version is 3.1.28
cardmgr: watching 2 sockets

now lsmod reports ds, i82365, and pcmcia_core to be loaded.

then i insert the card:

kernel: cs: cb_allow(bus 32): vendor 0x115d, device 0x0003
cardmgr: initializing socket 0
kernel: ROM image dump:
cs: cb_config(bus 32)
cs: IO port probe 0x0100-0x04ff: excluding 0x290-0x297 0x378-0x37f
cs: IO port probe 0x0298-0x0377: clean.
cs: IO port probe 0x0380-0x04cf: clean.
cs: IO port probe 0x04d8-0x04ff: clean.
cs: IO port probe 0x0800-0x08ff:_

the final '_' is the blinking cursor, and it just hangs there
forever. completely frozen.

the same thing happens with a lucent wavelan card, a 3c575_cs, the
adaptec slimscsi 1460c, and a 8mb compaq flashcard.

this is on Debian Woody from the lob.de CDs from System 2001
pcmcia-cs version 3.1.28 on kernel 2.2.19 (debian stock)

any help would be appreciated!
