I thought this problem sounded familiar, but it was a year ago when I
installed it the first time. I searched through my mailbox and found
reference to some help I got the first time about. I guess the
installation overwrote the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file. After exluding
0x2f8-0x2ff it works fine.
