None Problem w/Thinkpad 390 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Date: 2000, Jun 07
From: John Auer jaa

 System: IBM Thinkpad 390
 OS: Debian 2.2.14
 cardctl version 3.1.15
 PCMCIA card: 3COM 3CXEM556 NIC/modem

 Current config.opts settings:
   include port 0x108-0x4ff, port 0x1000-0x17ff
   include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
   include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff
   exclude irq 3
   exclude irq 4
   exclude irq 5
   exclude irq 7

 Also tried:
   include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff,
           memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff

If I boot into Linux directly from powerup, I consistently get "timed out during reset" errors. Booting into 98 first, and then rebooting into Linux doesn't work the first time (bridge register mapping failed). Rebooting (into Linux) again DOES work. I've tried different high mem settings, interrupt exclusion, etc., but I can't make heads or tails of this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

First (cold) boot:
