Description David Monniaux 1999-10-30 13:46:38 EDT
My laptop currently runs RedHat 6.0 with the shipped kernel
2.2.5 + kernel-pcmcia-cs, and my Accton EN2216 network card
(a PCMCIA 8390-based card) works like a breeze.

PCMCIA bridge.

floppy. The installer does not detect my PCMCIA bridge (it
says about the following:
PCI bridge probe: not found.

on the same LAN, with a copy of the distribution on the hard
