I have installed TurboLinux 6.0 on an external IDE hard disk with PCMCIA interface (brand: 'Kangourou disk') and got the same problem: at the first boot the Linux partition cannot be seen because the PCMCIA driver is not still loaded.

I understand that the problem can be solved following the instructions of chapt.5.3 of the PCMCIA-HOWTO, but they are not understatable to me: I do not know anything about Linux.

In particular I cannot understand how I can pass commands to Linux such as pcinitrd when Linux OS is not running.

Could an expert write down step-by-step instructions for non-specialists?

Gratefully,
Leonardo Presciuttini
