I tried a newer Knoppix and the newest DamnSmallLinux, but both have an
old version. DamnSmallLinux has cardmgr 3.2.2. Do you know a Live-Linux
which has a never pcmcia-cs package included? Could this perhaps be a
problem with the old cardmgr that my PCMCIA cards aren't correct
detected? Should I try a newer one?
