Hi David,

First of all thank you that you want to help.

I can always succesfully load both DOC´s (8MB Mill. and 16MB DOC2000)
without problem. They are always detected correctly.
And PCMCIA works with the 8MB DOC Mill.
The problem is that I CAN NOT load the other modules succesfully after
loading the 16MB DOC2000 but I CAN load them after loading the 8MB DOC Mill.
The ISDN Card is PCI and the wavelan card is PCMCIA + ISA PCMCIA Adapter and
they are not inserted at the same time, so I have eighter inserted the PCI
ISDN card or the ISA PCMCIA Adapter (1 slot) + PCMCIA Wavelan card but not
both together.

Sorry, I don´t exactely understand your last question:
Which kind of resources does the DOC use?
- /proc/ioports
- /proc/interrupts
- /proc/iomem
- /proc/dma
and why can´t I see in above files which resources are occupied by the DOC?
When you say "memory region", would that be /proc/iomem or /proc/ioports? (I
think /proc/iomem but I am not shure).
The info which I get when doing modprobe docprobe is /proc/iomem or
If there would be a problem with the memory region with the PCI ISDN
adapter, how could I change the memory region for it?

Sorry for this big confusion on my side and for asking so many questiones.

Best regards
