Use this page to discuss issues related to installing Linux from or onto PCMCIA devices. This could include installation procedures for specific Linux distributions.

If you have already installed Linux and are having trouble configuring PCMCIA, then you should probably be in a different forum.

Note that problems encountered during a Linux installation can be particularly difficult to solve, because a typical install environment will not provide debugging tools or any way of reconfiguring PCMCIA. In some cases, the best option is to find another way of installing Linux that does not require PCMCIA; and then debug the PCMCIA problem if it persists.
