Question only one socket recognized on a machine with 2 Type II's

Hi - I have been trying to get PCMCIA support up and running
with Caldera OpenLinux, build 2.0.35 -- right now only socket
0 is even being recognized. An excerpt from the boot messages 
is :


.
.
.
Intel PCIC Probe
  VIA VT83C469 at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00, 1 socket
  host opts [0]: ring
  ISA irqs (scanned) = 3,4,5,7,9,11,12 status change on irq 11
.
.
.

I have CD-ROM successfully mounted on socket 0. Any ideas on 
what is keeping socket 1 from getting seen? Thanks in advance 
- Jesse

None This setup sounds strange to me

So... what kind of machine is this, exactly?

You can try specifying PCIC_OPTS="extra_sockets=1" in your PCMCIA
startup options (/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia for Red Hat).  I'm not sure how
else the probe could misdetect the number of sockets.

Sad things don't sound good if Hinds doesn't know...

I put the extra_sockets=1 in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia, but 
rebooting the system got me the same messages. I used to use 
this laptop with Win 95 and both slots. The computer is a AST
Ascentia 910N (486DX4/75Mhz 8Mb + 4Mb addition module). Linux
is build 2.0.35, Caldera Openlinux 1.3. Thanks for your help-
 Jesse
