Description of problem:
I'm getting a "PCMCIA not found" type message, while booting with the 
pcmcia.img image.  I'm trying to install RH on a laptop via NFS.  The install 
process asks for the pcmciadd.img driver disk, but not much happens.  After 
several prompts (language, kybd, etc.), i'm get to the install options list, 
which only shows a HD install.

Is there a revised version of pcmcia.img that fixes this problem?

I'm trying to install RH8.0 on a Dell Latitude XPi P133ST laptop, it doesn't 
have a CDROM so I'm doing it via NFS.  This process worked flawlessly with 


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot pcmcia.img, 
2. have tried with and w/o:  LINUX DD, LINUX ASKMETHOD, and the combo version.
3. process runs till install options dialog appears, showing only "Hard Disk".

Actual Results:  doing Alt-F3 display a "PCMCIA devide not found" error

Expected Results:  display choices for net install: NFS, HTTP, FTP

The probe for non-cardbus pcmcia adapters was broken in the kernel-pcmcia-cs
package shipped in Red Hat Linux 8.0.  This is fixed in the beta for our next
release (Phoebe)
