Question pcmcia intall hangs 

Forum: Installing Linux using or onto a PCMCIA device
Date: 2000, Feb 14
From: Jon Page <>

I am trying to setup a laptop to dual-boot Win98 and Linux 6.1.

I have created the pcmcia boot floppy but the install hangs early on when initializing the PC card devices.

This laptop is a Compaq Armada 7750MT and has a 3Com etherlink III 3c589D in slot 2 and a Megahertz 33.6 modem in slot one. It also has a built in 28.8 modem.

I have tried this several times, with both cards in and with only the NIC in but I still have the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated.
