The floppies loaded fine for me, but it would not activate any pccards
It never seemed to even apply power to the cards. I tried with a prism2
card that both work fine with the install floppies from 5.2.1 Release.
Once I got 5.3-BETA1 installed, the cards worked fine there. The
just with the install floppies. I saw this behavior on two machines
(Dell Inspiron 5000 and Dell Inspiron 5000E) which both use the TI
1225. I tried
it with and without ACPI.
