Question PCMCIA ethernet install 

Forum: Installing Linux using or onto a PCMCIA device

Hi, I have a Texas Instruments 5200 laptop. I installed
it a few years ago using Caldera 1.3 via NFS PCMCIA ethernet
card, an IBM ethernet credit card adapter. Lately I have
been trying to install RedHat 6.2. The laptop has a pci
docking port, which creates a peer discovery loop unless
the boot param "pci=nopeer" or pci="nobios" is used. When
these param's are used, the install hangs at a blue screen
stating "...PC Card services". I am probably going to re-
partition the drive and do a hard-drive install, but decided
to post here just to see if someone had a solution or possible
solution. Here is the Caldera info which works at this time:
From dmesg:
Card services 3.0.3 Kernel 2.0.35
Cirrus PD672x at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00 2 sockets
A hard-drive is a lot of noise, and I'll admit I'm lazy,
the net install is a lot easier.
