Hi to all!
I am trying to use an UMTS/GPRS card with my toshiba laptop SM30-801 but got 
this issue:
if i plug in, the computer freezes;
i am using kernel 2.6.15-gentoo-r1 with pcmciautils 0.13
Those are the kernel setting:

As you can see, on other laptop the same card is working ( )

I tested with 3 differents live cd (slax,kubuntu and knoppix) but the resoult 
is the same.
If I keep the card inside the sloot during the boot, it freezes..

Thanks for all
