I have an old NEC Versa 25c, which is was retired from its Xterminal duty. (Replaced by an I-Opener :-). I thought it would be a good storage device (1.3GB) for my digital camera for trips. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work. The symptom is that inserting the CF card (w/ PCMCIA adapter) completely hangs the machine, no message, no log, no response. I am running RH 6.2 with CS 3.12 on a 25MHz i486. The PCMCIA slot works fine w/ a network card (Thomas Conrad), wireless card (Wavelan) and sram card (Fuji). The Nikon CF card (SanDisk?) works fine on my UDB (Alpha Multia) with RH 6.2 CS 3.12 and my Zoomer. This may not be a Linux problem. I notice that the BIOS wouldn't even run on poweron when the CF card is in the slot. However, I was hoping that the Kernel has more control than the BIOS.
