I'm trying to install fc2 on my sony vaio pcg-n505x with a PCMCIA 
CD51 CDROM with the media in it. I'm using the 'normal' fix of linux 
ide=0x180,0x386 but while this gets past the no CDROM, FC2 crashes 
just after picking the keyboard and language

How does it crash?

You also need pci=off, as explained in the release notes.

After the install the pci devices will get correctly set up on the
first normal boot
