No, I've not been able to make mine work.  I managed to fix the freezing
by handling errors in the PCMCIA code instead of just ignoring them.
But I couldn't get the cards to work, even after increasing some timeouts
as was suggested to me.  One day when I have time, I might look at
the Linux code for PCMCIA and se what they do, but I was hoping that
someone else would update our PCMCIA code.
