I am trying to install Linux on a Sharp 3040 laptop using
the Redhat 4.1 cd and a Panasonic 4x KXL-740 PCMCIA cd-rom
drive. The cd-rom drive works fine under win95. I used
fips to repartition my hard drive so I have a 400 meg partition
available for Linux. I made the boot floppy and the supplemental
boot floppy using rawrite.exe . I booted using the boot floppy and
got to the screen which asks if PCMCIA support is needed.
I answered yes and put the supplemental floppy in the drive.
I then get a message that the PCMCIA probe failed. What
do I do now? I have the Redhat 4.1 users guide but it doesn't
discuss this problem.
