For PCMCIA cards that don't appear to work, be _sure_ to include the
output of 'pccardctl info' and 'pccardctl ident'. 2.6.15 and 2.6.16
changed the way that PCMCIA drivers get bound to particular hardware
instances, which may be what you're running into. The output of those
commands can help determine what driver should be binding to your cards.
Also, if you happen to remember the driver that got bound to the card in
previous FC versions, that's helpful as well. Stick all this into the
