Question Seek laptop recommendation for 2 PCMCIA cards 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues

Hi !

I'm thinking of buying a cheap laptop on which I would want to run Linux. I plan to use 2 PCMCIA cards - a wavelan card and an ethernet card. I understand that there are issues with configuring 2 PCMCIA cards on Toshiba laptops - in fact I'm trying to help a friend sort through precisely that problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions on problem-free laptops in terms of installing 2 cards ?

Thanks !

I know of no problems with Toshiba or other laptops having to do with
handling two cards at once.

You can sometimes run into interrupt conflicts that only show up when
two cards are in use, but that is just a matter of adding the right
interrupt constraints to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts.  There is a section
in the PCMCIA-HOWTO about that issue.
