Attempting install of RH 8.0 on IBM Thinkpad 701 using pcmcia.img and

does not.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

* pcmcia probe returned: |PCI bridge probe: not found.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
Databook TCIC-2 probe: not found.

System is IBM ThinkPad 701 with 75MHz 486DX4 and 40MB memory.  RH7.1 runs fine,
but need to upgrade to RH8.0 to take advantage of newer versions of
applications.

Minimum requirement for 8.0 are a Pentium class machine and 64M of RAM.
