Question PCMCIA and NFSROOT 

Forum: PCMCIA driver development
Date: 2000, Feb 01
From: Fabrice Clement Fabrice.Clement

I wish to put the kernel with ip auto config enable (BOOTP 
/ ipconfig.c) and root on NFS to make laptops diskless (to 
install/backup them).

Using cardmgr, I succeed by recalling ip_auto_config in the
init function of the nfsroot.c code. This is necessary because
ip auto config code is called before I can run cardmgr in the  
linuxrc script (kernel 2.2). But I don't want to change the
kernel sources.

I have tried kernel 2.3.40 with support of PCMCIA and PCMCIA
network cards support : it seems nice for what I want...
(it's experimental, ok, but I don't need perfect stability!)
but I don't succeed to make ip auto config detect my
PCMCIA network card. I probably made a mistake in the
configuration. I just want to know if I can use bootp during
the boot having a network PCMCIA card (is the PCMCIA drivers
are loaded before ipconfig.c?).

Thanks for your time & work
