Ok, are you trying to install Woody (aka Debian 3.0)?
I don't recall exactly but at some point of the Woody installation it
should ask about pcmcia support, anyway do you need to use the pcmcia
to complete the installation?
If isn't strictly necessary, you can complete it after the bare
installation. IIRC the boot floppy kernel, for space constraint, lack
HW support than a normal kernel...
P.S. keep the conversation on the list, you'll have more chances to
find people with more knowledge =)
