I was editing my file after a 'pcmcia stop', to show the free resource on
my computer, as it say that 'kernel: hdc: IRQ probe failed (0xb9f8)'

I'm using a 2.4.20 self compiled kernel. I  have also updated the 
/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file, changing the controler from PCIC="i82365"
to PCIC="yenta_socket". I also copy the file /etc/pcmcia/config to 
/etc/pcmcia/config-2.4. Before that, my card weren't even detected. Now, they 
are detected, but I think I have a problem in ressource allocation. 
I must I have made something wrong in my copy/paste from /proc/devices, 
as I can see fd (my floppy drive), ide0 (my hard drive), and ide1 (my cdrom).

It says 'ide1: ports already in use, skipping probe', so I guess my
pcmcia cdrom drive should use something like ide2. Is there any way to tell 
the module that I must use this ???

The module is correctly loaded, but I can't figure out which serial drive 
is now created. /dev/ttyS?? I guess, but what are the ??. Where can I find
that information. I can't see it in the kernel message log (I was looking 
for something like 'kernel: ttyS?? probing, but I must be wrong)
