	RedHat 6.1, kernel 2.2.12-20
	pcmcia 3.1.6
below is the messages from boot up,

That's it.  Non of the devices (Jaz, Zip and a hard drive) was detected after that.  Can anyone please help?
Thank you in advance.  -Alex

None My first suggestion is to upgrade to 3.1.10

I suspect that this is a PCI interrupt configuration problem that is
fixed in the current (3.1.10) drivers.
