I worked around it by just using the 1.3.2 install floppy to partition
and then dropping a -current kernel (1.3H) in the fray. (whee)
-current still doesn't do this pcmcia controller, but I've heard that
support is in the works.
pcic_wait_ready: ready never happened, status = 8c
Is what the kernel blurts at me when it gets to the pcmcia controller.
Oh well. I can wait a bit I guess. If someone needs me to be a guinea-
pig for this, I'll happily do it. I can even provide a kernel conf file
so that the debugging kernels aren't 2.5Meg in size (I still need to fit
them onto a floppy to get them onto the laptop).
The weather is here, wish you were beautiful.
