27. Appendix B. Supported PCMCIA cards

These cards are supported by David Hinds' PCMCIA package and this list is taken from his web page ( here).

CardBus cards are listed at the end of each section. At this time, all CardBus drivers should be treated as experimental. Beware that some cards have 16-bit and CardBus versions with very similar names. If the CardBus version is not specifically listed as supported here, then you should not expect it to work.

27.1. Ethernet cards

All other cards use the pcnet_cs driver. Other NE2000-compatible cards that are not on the list are also likely to work with pcnet_cs.

27.2. Fast Ethernet (10/100baseT) adapters

epic_cb and tulip_cb drivers are experimental and need a 2.2.x or newer kernel

27.3. Token-ring adapters

You should at least have kernel 1.3.72

27.4. Wireless network adapters

27.5. ISDN

27.6. Modem and serial cards

Virtually all modem cards, simple serial port cards, and digital cellular modems should work. Also ISDN modems that emulate a standard UART are supported.

27.7. Memory cards

All SRAM cards should work. Unsupported flash cards can be read but not written.

27.8. SCSI adapters

Be careful. Many vendors, particularly CD-ROM vendors, seem to switch controller chips at will. Generally, They will use a different product code, but not always: older (supported) New Media Bus Toaster cards are not easily distinguishable from the current (unsupported) Bus Toaster cards.

27.9. ATA/IDE CD-ROM adapters

You should at least have kernel 1.3.72

27.10. Multifunction cards

You should at least have kernel 1.3.73

27.11. ATA/IDE card drives

These card drives are supported starting with kernel 1.3.72. Both Flash-ATA cards and rotating-media cards are supported. The very old Western Digital 40MB drives are not supported, because they do not conform to the PCMCIA ATA specifications.

27.12. ATA/IDE Interface Cards

27.13. Parallel port cards:
