I've just installed Mandrake 9.1, and i'm trying to have my memory pcmcia
card properly installed and recognized (card is MSAC-PC2, with a memory
stick).

When i insert it, i have in the syslog the following :
Jun 28 15:52:07 localhost kernel: cs: memory probe 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff:

looping and looping....
when i try to eject it with cardctl, it says nothing, and then after a while
i cannot halt or reboot.

Do you have any clues ???

Many thanks,
Marc
