It's a laptop :-)
hp xe4100, bios is hp's own I think.

Taking a look at /proc/interrupts I see that the pcmcia controller is at irq 
11, which it shares with eth0 when I'm online. 9 is not used.
I guess it's looking ok then. Just have to stay offline when
(in the future ;-) I'm using the multiface.

Thanks a lot, Mark. I'll be saving this for future reference to wait for 
the time I'll get a hdsp pci interface for my other computer.

Thanks also to Ron for the url. The article was enlightening too.
