looking through the three rh-7.3 distribution disks, i
see no pcmcia-cs package per se. the only thing close
that i find is:
and when i enter:
rpm -q -i kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.27-18
i am told that the package is installed. what does this
amount to? it appears i am running kernel 2.4.18-3, either
vmlinux-2.4.18-3 or vmlinuz-2.4.18-3
via grub. (never did understand what the difference
between these two was).
none the less, setpnp is not found.

boot/config-2.4.18-3 contains the following line:
# CONFIG_PNPBIOS is not set
looks as though it should be, but is it ok just to
modify that file, like:
i'm diffident about modifying things i don't understand.

that would indeed be wonderful.
sorry to be so ignorant, but i haven't a clue as to how
to proceed from here.
