PCMCIA support

dasanco's picture
Does anyone know how to, or has anyone already added PCMCIA support to an appliance?

I have been experimenting with loading 11.0rc CORE to a CF card in A PCMCIA (PC Card) adapter. I have been able to install it to a hard drive and add PCMCIA support that can see the CF card in the PC slot adapter. But I cannot seem to figure out how to get the LiveCD installer to see it directly.

Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

Even if you can get it to install there, you'll still probably need to boot off the HDD (or a USB etc). Although I have heard that you can get IDE -> CF adaptor so if you got one of those you could probably install that way (apparently they make the CF card appear as a normal HDD) and then work out how to boot it from your HDD.

For further research/help/support you could try the Ubuntu forums. The current stable is based on 8.04/Hardy and the 11RC is based on 10.04/Lucid
