I did this today, mmm seems something is working (work around). But
battery stats an apm like monitoring of the battery is not working any
more. So what happens if the battery is empty? just system shutdown
without saving of the memory and so?

Again i can use any of the wireless cards and ata card i own. One is a
Lucent Orinoco Gold card and the other is a ASUS wl100 card (prism2.5)
and both seem to be enabled but fail init state.  Even the ASUS is being
detected as a Lucent chip which is of course false it's a Prism 2.5

Those glitches  are "known" it seems older ComPaQ laptops had the same
issues long time ago.

Under 4.8 all works with my setup. I have to use 4.8 at home because of
wireless access ....
