Thanks for the quick reply.  Do you have a reference?  I 
haven't had any success with deja and Alta-Vista yet.  The
hardware work around seems to be my only way out (short of
buying a new machine.)  I am also wondering if I could do
the hack on the adapter?  Mistake will cost me only $10.

None Again, I don't recommend this at all

I'm not sure what sort of reference you want to see.  I certainly
don't know of anything documenting how to do the hardware mod, if that
is what you want.  Looking at the general PCMCIA specs I have, I'm not
even sure how I figured out which was the right pin to cut.  Even
getting the laptop disassembled is not trivial.  I do not recommend
this and I'm kind of sorry I mentioned it.

I don't know what your CF adapter looks like so I don't know if it
might be easier to do the mod there.  It would be less risky than
cutting wires in your laptop, for sure.
