Unfortunatelly growing up PC104 stack (adding PC104 PCMCIA controller) isn't 
an option. We are limited in size of stack by 1U and atm it's already 
completely filled up :) So PC104 (and as a result ISA) isn't for us ATM :(

ps: Sorry, i'd to mention this limitaion in my first posting. Anyway, thanks 
for info. At least now i have some options.
