From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
I have an HP ZE4145 notebook, and I can't seem to get the PCMCIA services to 
start without causing a kernel panic or generating an error message stating 
that it has interrupt 5 and wants interrupt 11. Searching some news groups, 
this is an issue that multiple people are having, and they seem to think it's 
an BIOS issue which HP needs to fix. This may be the case, but I am wondering 
if you can provide me some hints on how I may be able to work around the 
problem for now. Any help would be appreciated.

It looks like this problem may be fixed in the 2.6 kernel. I am using the 
2.5.53 kernel right now and the PCMCIA slot seems to be working. Thanks.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
