Hi, folks  Using Debian Lenny OS with kernel.
I have a very old DEC VP575 laptop which I want to use as back-up
server.  I need two net connections.  When I use a single pccard,
wired, all is well.  If I insert my second card, WIFI-Intersil Prism2.5 
I get the following /var/log/messages error:
pcmcia: request for exclusive IRQ couuld not be fulfilled.
pcmcia: the driver needs updating to supported shared IRQ lines

Can someone point me to a link which addresses this and fixes it?
Or is more info needed?

TIA Jack
