Yep.  Do it on my Wallstreet every day.  I run an old kernel that
I patch here and there, and the pcmcia-3.0.7 that I ported a long
time ago.  It looks like Paul and others have kept it up to date.

Ooooo.  I found that as well with my ATA flash cards and compact
adaptors.  I work on it from time to time, but haven't found the
problem yet.  I know that something doesn't match correctly between
the pcmcia-cs and the IDE driver.

At least other people now know....anyone have any ideas?  I have
not worked on it for a while, maybe I'll take a stab at it again.
