Hi again,

I downloaded the debian source for pcmcia-cs. I also had the sources for the 
linux kernel 2.4.4 which have the PCMCIA in it. I was looking at them and the 
linux drivers look easier to put in than the PCMCIA package stuff (the linux 
stuff is newer and derived from the pcmcia source) - is there any reason why 
I shouldn't go ahead and use the drivers out of the latest linux kernel?

Well any way I was trying to do that but I was confused. In gnumach/linux 
there are two directories that are very similar to each other dev and src. 
The have the same subdirs and many of the same files but the src dir have 
extra stuff that look like they have been modified for hurd. Which dir am I 
meant to be putting the PCMCIA stuff in?
