You need a way to enable the PCMCIA slots in DOS. It will generally be
recognized by windows automatically. There is usually a DOS "card director"
program available from the PC manufacturer. I downloaded mine from IBM at
http://www.pc.ibm.com/support. Go to "Notebooks and PC Companions" and then
drill down to the right family. The "driver matrix" lists all the latest
drivers for the model ThinkPad (or whatever) you choose.
Maybe Bernie can share his experiences getting his card going.
