I've been trying to get Freesco running on an old Toshiba Satellite 4070CDS.
This laptop has no fixed ethernet connection, so I'm "forced" to use 2 pcmcia cards.

At first I used a Xircom and some card with a Realtek chipset, which seemed to work fine, but after a while, the network connections seemed to die for no apparent reason.

I found that the Xircom is a 16bit card, but the Realtek is a 32Bit card, so I'm guessing there might be some kind of hardware conflict. But that is a totally different topic :D

To test this, I found some 3Com 3CCFE574BT pcmcia cards (16bit) real cheap.

But before I buy them... will these cards work with Freesco at all? using the pcmcia package that is...

Yes, the 3Com 574 is supported.

Thanx. That's all I needed to know.
I couldn't find any reference to this card in the support file.
(that, or I really need glasses :D )

Freesco 0.3.8 has been running on the laptop with these cards for about a week now.
and she's been purring like a kitten :)

Thanx!
