Using a multimeter, I found the pin on the adapter which 
connects to pin 43.  I pushed the pin back and forth with a
small screwdriver until it breaks.   I popped it into the 
laptop, and it didn't freeze!  Instead the cardmgr says,
Jul 14 18:48:19 Alpha cardmgr[394]: initializing socket 0
Jul 14 18:48:19 Alpha cardmgr[394]: socket 0: ATA/IDE Fixed Disk

Looks like if I can get it to pass through the probing phase,
then I'll be in a good shape.
