how true. i thought i'd just glom 2.3.42 and i'd not
have to reinstall the 3.1 pcmcia stuff - what optimism. :)

undoubtedly. one of the biggest problems i noticed was
simply that of confusion. the pcmcia stuff is scattered
in the config setup in several places. i wasn't sure if
i needed to enable wireless lan support, and cardbus support,
or if one or the other was sufficient, etc. tres confusing.

ok. is there a convention to signify which is stable, or is
there simply an accepted last-known-stable version? that said,
3.1.10 has been a champ for me. i esp appreciate the rolled-in
airo drivers.
