SubjectRe: PCMCIA problems on IBM ThinkPad 600X
There are problems with some PCMCIA drivers included in the kernel. For 
example, support for cardbus 3com cards was moved to 3c59x.o driver. It
works (on 600X at least) only of you compile it in. It will not work as
a module.

I think a much better solution right now is to use drivers from
pcmcia-cs package. It always works. If you do not configure any support
for pcmcia in your kernel, when you build pcmcia-cs it will build kernel
drivers from its own source tree. Just make sure you use the latest
version. This also allows configuration files interoperbility with 2.2.x
kernel, if you wish to use that as well.

You just need to make sure you are using "ordinary" configuration files
if you use pcmcia-cs, since 2.4 uses different names for some of pcmcia
drivers. Stock pcmcia-cs package will do nicely.
