The bridge type always matters, whether you're using a Cardbus card or
not.

I haven't had many reports of Toshiba laptop problems with the recent
PCMCIA packages, but I know there are still things that are wrong in
the support for these ToPIC bridges.  The remaining problems are hard
to stamp out because the documentation I have is quite poor, and the
number of different Toshiba laptops is quite large.

As a temporary work around, you can go into your BIOS setup menu, and
change the PCMCIA bridge mode.  There are three options: "PCIC",
"auto", and "CardBus/16-bit".  Try all three: you may find one that
works, and will get you through the installation.
