Inspiron 8000 pcmcia problem??



Try adding this to your /etc/rc.conf file:

pccard_mem="0xd8000"

I have been using an I8k for 2.5 years now without issue
with this specified.  I've yet to run across a card that didn't
work.

                                                                         Sean
