None RedHat 6.1 Install using PC Card - arg! 

Forum: Installing Linux using or onto a PCMCIA device
Date: 2000, Mar 18
From: Lionel B. Dyck lbdyck

I have a IBM Thinkpad 701C, 24mb ram, 340mb hd, and both a Cadmusmicro 10/100 Ethernet PC Card (lna100n) and and IBM PCMCIA 4x CDROM (1969-008) using redhat 6.1 pcmcia.img diskette.

Apparently neither are found when I attempt my install. With the CDROM the "Initializing PC Card" popup appears and then a popup asking for a driver diskette. However the CDROM drive spins the CD during the initialization so it appears to be finding it but something isn't right.

For the ethernet card I see the same only there is no indication that the card was found - only the prompt for the driver diskette. With this card I found in the manual the following:

** Getting Started for RedHat 6.0 with PCMCIA-3.0.9 
* Login as root.
* Copy lnax100.o into /lib/modules/2.2.5 -"cp lnax100.o /lib/modules/2.2.5"
* Copy config.lna100n into /etc/pcmcia - "cp config.lna100n /etc/pcmcia"
* Use vi editor to append the following line into /etc/pcmcia/config - source ./config.lna100n
* Restart the cardmgr - "/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart"
* Logoff root. 

But I can't find the lnax100.o or config.lna100n nor do I know how to update the pcmcia.img generated diskette.

Help (please)
