        You may have to.

        You need the cardmgr daemon for anyhthing to happen.

        My guess is that you got that message because there is no socket driver

        I would suggest familiarizing yourself with linux pcmcia card services

the dark and then asking if anyone knows where the bullet went isn't
very productive.
