RE: Laptop and PCMCIA

I installed it on an Extensa 570CDT (except for X); no problems with the
base installation. The CD-ROM is a standard ATAPI on /dev/hdb. The fact
that there is a reboot involved between the last floppy disk and the first
CD usage made it quite simple (as the CD and FDD share one bay).
The fun started when I tried to get networking started. The PCMCIA
package installed just fine, except that Debian tries to set up networking
BEFORE Card Services is installed. I moved Card Services into
/etc/init.d/boot before the network is initialized, and added a 'sleep'
command that was just long enough to allow the Ethernet card (in slot A)
I suppose that moving Card Services into the 'networking' script is the
proper approach, but the bottom line was that it worked.
