===PCMCIA Support===
 +
<pre>
 +
: My question is what PCMCIA card is known to work ( besides the
 +
: impossible to find Xircom for which drivers are available at NexTanswers.)
 +
: If  someone has been able to make the 3C589 ( of which I see many
 +
:variations ) work, what has to be done ?
 +
for us, after chosing the right(!) interrupt (experiment a little bit
 +
there), any 3Com589 card did - the last one we used was a version 'D'
 +
(iirc, it might also be 'E').
 +
 +
The important part is to add the 'letter' behind 589 to the drivers'
 +
id-strings (something like manufactuerer="3Com", type="589D") in the
 +
/private/drivers/i386/"589-driver".config directory. I don't have a
 +
version of these notebooks available, but it was quite trivial.
 +
 +
Not so trivial was to find the right interrupt. With the "wrong", so
 +
allowed ones, the card was detected but simply wouldn't work (i.e. it
 +
wouldn't send, iirc). That was a decision between an IRQ either below or
 +
above IRQ8 (so 3, 4, 5(used by PCIC-driver), 7, or 9, 10, 11), only one
 +
group worked (for us); I think it were the 'lower ones' and I decided
 +
to use '3', swapping it for the second serial port, but I'm not sure.
 +
 +
: Hmmm, I may did something wrong, but I am not able to get a 589E to run. 
 +
: It is some kind of 'Megahertz', up to D the cards work fine.
 +
No, caveat emptor, my memory could play me a trick; I'm just sure a
 +
'bunch of 589 cards' did work, not of the up to 'E' statement. For
 +
certain I also do know it of the 'D' version, as I've put them into
 +
to Toshibas (a Tecra 750 and a Satellite 4000) successfully.
