	Many apologies on how long it took to get this info... This may help
other Multia users trying to get the PCMCIA slots working..
My Multia is a 166 mHz model, VX40... 
It is running Win NT4, Service Pack 5...

Resources used:
---PCMCIA controller
	I/O range = 		3E0 - 3E1
	Memory Range =	D0000 - D3FFF

Here are the resources used by a couple of PC cards I had. They were all
inserted in the top PC slot (nearest the power supply)
---Hayes Optima 33.6 V.34 + FAX modem
	IRQ =	5
	Com = 3
	I/O = 	3E8 - 3EF
---US Robotics Megahertz XJ4336 - CC4336
	IRQ =	5
	Com = 3
	I/O = 	3E8 - 3EF
---US Robotics Megahertz XJ1288/CC1288
	IRQ =	5
	Com = 3
	I/O = 	3E8 - 3EF

Next I tried left the XJ1288 in the top slot, then added the XJ4336 to the
(top)-US Robotics Megahertz XJ1288/CC1288
	IRQ =	5
	Com = 3
	I/O = 	3E8 - 3EF
(bot)-US Robotics Megahertz XJ4336 - CC4336
	IRQ =	5
	Com = 4
	I/O = 	2E8 - 2EF

	I tried a 3Com 3C589C NIC card, but the machine would not get past
the blue "Windows NT Version 4" startup screen???
	I also tried an Intel EtherExpress PRO/100 NIC, but didn't have a
driver to get it started. I'll try it again tonight, and pass the info on
tomorrow... I will also try more cmbinations to make sure that this resource
info doesn't change. If anyone wants me to check other stuff on my Multia,
let me know....
