Hi Mattew,
If i put one P222 card on slot 3 ( or any slot between 3 to 8) , i do see P222 PCI to PCMCIA adapter card on the Linux system but i don't see PCMCIA card which will be slid on that P222 adapter. So pcmcia adapter is working for all first 11 slots but only 4 PCI slots (1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th)do see my PCMCIA card.
Please let me know if you need more information.

So if i use only one PCI to PCMCIA adapters or multiple adapters, only those 4 slots are working all the time. SO if it is resource issue then at least one card work on any PCI slot but that's not the case. Please advice me to fix or find this problem.

So you're saying the problem actually is that PCMCIA adapters only work in
slots 1, 2, 9 and 10?  ie if you take all the cards out of the system
and put a pcmcia adapter in slot 3, it will not work?

the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
