Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Re: Question Need help setting up pcmcia-cs-3.1.13 on Linux Mandrake (Andrew Brackenbury)

The PCMCIA package (the *.tar.gz file) is only about 1 MB so it will
easily fit on a single floppy.  So I have no idea what you did to
split the files across three floppies.  If you tried to unpack the
package under Windows, you've probably messed it up sufficiently that
you should just start over.  The PCMCIA-HOWTO does have detailed
installation instructions.

However, backing up a step, you say that your linux setup "will not
recognize" your cards.  That sounds very fishy to me and sounds like
you've just not configured things properly, and there may be no need
to upgrade your drivers.  See the PCMCIA-HOWTO section on diagnosing
installation problems.  You need to check basic things like (1) is
PCMCIA turned on in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia?  (2) are there PCMCIA
messages in your system log?  (3) do you hear beeps when you insert
cards?  etc.
