Hmm - this is rather OT but I'm having trouble getting some Seano cards
w/hostap working under a Ricoh cradle in a Debian system at the moment;
it's a PCMCIA problem as I'm getting "unable to apply power" under 2.6
kernels, and "unable to map card memory" under 2.4 with any card I put
in it (32-bit or 16-bit).
The motherboard is the latest Intel Pentium 4 desktop board. If I take
the hard drive, PCMCIA cradle and Seano card and stick it into an Intel
Pentium 3 motherboard, everything works flawlessly.
I've asked around on the PCMCIA lists, unfortunately without much luck;
