Well I followed your directions.  Built the pcmcia stuff into the
kernel, ide-cs as a module.  Got the latests pcmcia 3.1.29 package and
built it.  And used your address.  This seems to fix the "cat
/proc/ioports" issue.  But the machine will still lock up and turn off
when I insert the card.  And XMON reveals I am at the same spot

So my questions to you are:

1) could I get your .config file for the kernel.  Maybe I have some
other thing I am missing.

2) Which Microdrive and PCCard adapter are you using.  I have the 1Gig
and am using the adapter it came with.  Maybe there is an isuue with the
adapter I have.

Thanks for your reply,
