Cool, you've the same PCMCIA than me (I owe an Acer TM370, just for info). I had tons of problems for making it work, since, one day, it just worked. Anyway, in your case it seems to be detected... Did you check the webpage i sent on the previous mail with the project of the driver? cheers -- Jordi Molina Casas (warp3r) mail: warp3r@×××××.com www: www.warp3r.com If you're still sending mail to warper@eresmas, please update your address book, my current email is warp3r@×××××.com -- gentoo-laptop@g.o mailing list
