Using the tips at PCMCIA HOWTO ( console 8 and so .. ), I get the following:

cs:memory probe 0xa0000000 - 0xa0ffffff clean SYM53C500: invalid IRQ3 specified SCSI0: SYM53C500 at 0x130, IRQ 0 , fast PIO mode SCSI: 1 host

Here, usually the computer hungs for 3-4 seconds and reboots.

The IRQ is free ( IRQ 5 has the same behaviour; they are used troubleless for other PC cards ).

Sometimes ( usualy the first/second try ), I get the following:

Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: SYM53C500: Warning: PIO error!
Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: SYM53C500: Warning: PIO error!
Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: scsi0 channel 0 : resetting for second half of retries.
Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0.
Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 0x03 00 00 00 10 00 
... ... ( for each pid up to 6 ) ...
Dec 16 22:00:06 dione kernel: scsi : 0 hosts.
Dec 16 22:00:06 dione cardmgr[88]: shutting down socket 1
Dec 16 22:00:06 dione cardmgr[88]: executing: './scsi stop n/a'
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: + open() failed: No such file or directory
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: + /dev/n/a: No such file or directory
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: stop cmd exited with status 1
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: executing: 'rmmod sym53c500_cs'
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: executing: 'rmmod sg'

If I activate de debugging option in the SYM53C500, I get a cascade of ( until now ) unreadable messages, and the screen border changes to blue ( is a debugging feature).

Thanks again, and again :-)
