the problem has been reported on four different chipsets:
ENE C1410 (ico / mandrake)
o2micro6933 (myself / gentoo)
Texas Instruments PCI1250 (timothy ... i hope you don't mind that i call
			   you timothy ... just to make it easier to 
			   follow this discussion / red hat, planet 
ricoh ??? (derek / gentoo)

- derek: what problems exactly did you have? i'm not exactly sure, if
  your problem was similar to the one, ico, timothy and myself are
  experiencing ... 
- ene, o2micro and ricoh are cardbus bridges, rme doesn't suggest for
  using with an hdsp ... but they haven't had any complains about ti's
  cardbus bridges...

it's not a problem of the hardware revision of the hdsp, since i had the
same problems with thomas charbonnel's device, mine worked fine on his
machine ...

i hope we can track this problem down, since i'd really prefer to save
the money i wanted to spend for a new laptop for my summer trip to

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!"
