    Default Dell C600 pcmcia/carbus slots

    Ok this is a new one. Every so often after reboot if I insert a cardbus card it won't work.

    And this laptop does support cardbus as it only happens at random boots. Where's the next place to look to track this thing down?

    I have checked a few sites for linux compatibility, none have reported severe issues with pccard.

    I need to know more information:
    1) If it supports cardbus at random reboots, any cardbus/pcmcia card you insert will work?
    2) What sort of card do you insert into that drive?
    3) Have you tried inserting that card in other laptops?
