Description of problem:
I have a toshiba satellite pro 6100 laptop and this is the first linux
installation I have done where the installer wouldn't work.
As far as I can remember, the installer did the h/w detection, and
found everything but couldn't deal with the PC Cardbus controller.
I saw some mention of "yenta" iirc and then messages about "press
ctrl-alt-delete to reboot" etc...
The only way I could get FC2 on my laptop is by using "linux noprobe",
and ignoring the pccard bus h/w.
This is the relevant h/w.

hth - sorry it is sketchy :( Shitty memory, and I couldn't find any
logs of this part of the install as it is SO early on. Even before you
are asked ANY questions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Need toshiba satellite pro 6100
2. Start install
Actual Results: The installer complains about the h/w and offers
C-A-D to reset option.
Expected Results: installer should have found h/w correctly and
loaded relevant driver
Does this still happen with test2?
Sorry, left that job, no longer have that laptop to test :(
