Re-Compile your 2.0.30 kernel and answer YES! to PCMCIA support.

1. SlackWare 2.0.30 Install

I've got linux running on a Latitude problem.  Also have a 3Com
Ethernet and a Megahertz modem card in it (although I'm not sure I ever used
the modem with linux).  I really didn't do anything special, although I
did right-from-the-start compile a kernel on it which included PCMCIA support
serial support, and ethernet support.  (I have the ethernet and token ring support
compiled as modules, since it's either/or for me.).
