Thanks for your reply, but its a little more involved than just starting the pcmcia slot.
I did find the script was not executable, so I did the chmod and ran the script.
After rebooting, I did the 'lspcmcia' and there was no driver associated with the card.
The whole process is deeply flawed and could use a thorough explanation.
Experiences like this are one of the main reasons why more people don't use Linux.
Luckily, I have a very high tolerance for imprecision and vagueness, otherwise I would have abandoned Linux after my initial experience when the kernel was version 0.9!
You didn't comment on my remarks about the 'HowTo' being out of date -- are you familiar with the document I referred to?
Do you know if it is in revision? Do you know of a similar, better written document?
Thanks again -- Ray
