We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

This is believed to be fixed in the next version of the install floppies
we will put in Rawhide. The bug was reproducable and now fixed for our
Inspiron 8000.

If the new floppies (dated Feb 13th or later) do not fix the problem for you,
please reopen this bug.

The new floppies enabled the install to finish but nothing I try gets the 
PCMCIA slots to work.
