PCMCIA install of Red Hat 7.1 does not work. Booting from pcmcia.img works
but when the PCMCIA device drivers floppy is inserted and the process is
the installation process hangs for at least 12 (twelve!) hours!!
Earlier installations of 6.X and 7.0 via PCMCIA worked fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert the pcmcia.img into the laptop floppy drive
2.Start up the laptop
3.Follow the on-screen instructions
Actual Results: TOTAL SYSTEM HANG!
Expected Results: Installation procedure
No error messages, just a complete hang.

I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite-S103 and I loaded Windows XP Pro on the
hard drive. Then as I was attempting to load Red Hat 8.0, I ran into the same
"Initialize PC Card Devices" error. I tried the nopcmcia, then I got a "Blue
Screen of Death".
HERE'S HOW I GOT IT TO LOAD:
linux nopcmcia resolution=640x480 noprobe <enter>
When you are loading Linux, make sure to hit I for interactive startup. When
it asks for starting PCMCIA (y/n/c), be sure to hit no (n). Then it loads
fine. If anyone comes across or makes a driver for the pcmcia card on the
Toshiba laptops, please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
