Hi Pete

thanks for that but my understanding is that on a 2.6 kernel you don't 
actually use the pcmcia daemon as that is based on cardmgr and the new 
stuff uses kernel events via udev or hotplug. 

i have tried what you said though. I followed the 2.4 instructions in a 
howto just to see.  but it didn't work.

Do you have pcmcia working on a laptop.  if so could you email me a copy 
of your kernel config- i can diff that with mine and see if there's 
anything pcmcia / hotplug related that jumps out.
