Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Re: Question PCMCIA Configuration on ThinkPad 760XD with docking station (Adam Czezowski)
Date: 1999, Dec 07

Is there a way to solve this problem without guesswork?  I wish.  I
don't know of a foolproof way.  Newer versions of the PCMCIA package
try to be more careful about choosing memory windows, but I would not
really expect that to help in this case.  Choosing the memory window
addresses is hard: it depends on how transactions are forwarded
between the PCI devices in your laptop and the dock, and I don't know
of any easy way to deduce this information.

There is a section in the PCMCIA-HOWTO that discusses the "no high
memory space" warning.  Depending on what cards you want to use, it
may be important; CardBus cards in particular sometimes need large
memory windows.
