      just to make sure you realize this, al this does is disable it, if
      you want to fix the problem here are the sreps(on my dell i8k2 w/
      suse 8.0):
      -make sure that PCMCIA is stopped by typing in the command(all this
      as root or sued in as root) "rcpcmcia stop"
      -then edit the file "/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia"
      look for PCMCIA_SYSTEM="kernel" and you want to change the kernel
      part to external, then look for PCMCIA_CORE_OPTS="" and change that
      to PCMCIA_OPTS="probe_io=0"
      -now save and close the file
      -now rune "rcpcmcia start" and never have to type NOPCMCIA=yes

      hope that helps and works right if not let us know and we'll work on
