Description Ben Levenson 2001-02-08 13:45:20 EST
build: qa0208.0
symptom: system hangs after inserting pcmciadd.img disk.
reproducibility: it only seems to happen when I'm trying to do something
else, and
rarely happens when I try to reproduce this specific behavior
has happened with multiple floppies.
I verified the media w/ fdformat before I created the diskettes
vc3 (switched to vc3 immediately after selecting <OK>):

failed to load pcmcia_core -- ask for pcmciadd
read rhpcmcia

goingto insmod pcmcia_core.o (path is NULL)
going to insmod yenta_socket.o (path is NULL)
