SubjectRe: [Fwd: [PATCH] reduce size of bridge regions for yenta.c]
I don't like it at all. That change is not right. Usually the PCI
bridge before the CardBus bridge is transparent. Please check out the
Microsoft web site. Windows allocates 64MB region for each CardBus
bridge by default and goes down from there. You should apply Ivan
Kokshaysky's PCI bridge fix first. His first patch has a typo in it.

BTW, Guy, I bought an external USB-floppy drive. It is on sale at
Fry's, $39.99. I can create a boot floopy on my Sony and boot from
it.
