Question ISA adapter with Ricoh chipset

Just putting a system together (RH6.2) and added a PCMCIA ISAbus adapter (with a RICOH RF5C?96 chipset) to fit a wireless pcmcia card.

Everytime I launch pcmcia (/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start) I get:

 kernel: Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.8
 kernel:   kernel build: 2.2.14-5.0 #1 Tue Mar 7 20:35:25 EST 2000
 kernel:   options:  [pci] [cardbus] [apm]
 kernel: Intel PCIC probe:
 kernel:   Ricoh RF5C296/396 ISA-to-PCMCIA at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00, 1 socket
 kernel:     host opts [0]: none
 kernel:     ISA irqs (default) = 3,7,9,10,11,12,15 polling interval = 1000 ms
 cardmgr[5248]: starting, version is 3.1.8

and the entire system crashes. Note, no pcmcia card is plugged in at this moment.

finally I figured out that my motherboard has a built-in LPT2 port, which to my knowledge is using the same base io-address 0x3e0, as the pcmcia ISA adapter.

unfortunately the motherboard does not allow to turn the lpt2 port :-((. From what I've learned so far the ricoh PCMCIA chipset allows memory remapping. Is this supported with the current pcmcia package? If so, how would I configure it?

1. None Sounds like an IO port scan failure by David Hinds, 2000, Apr 21
