Is this problem ever going to be fixed?  I have tried the install on
older versions with the same problem and I can get the system installed,
but any pcmcia usage of the cd-rom requires turning pci off.  (And it is
*real* slow.)

Just wondering if it is worth my time.  (Since I will have to grab the
cd ISOs instead of the DVD one I already have.)

It would be nice to me able to use something other than Redhat 7.3 on my
Sony Vaio 505ve.  (Hacked far beyond warranty.)  

If I could afford another laptop, I would upgrade. I don't see that
happening this year, unless I find different employment.
