You didn't list anything about the 6.2 series of which I happen to be 
using the  "lfslivecd-x86-62-pre3"  successfully on my antique k6-2 
300mz 128mbram  PCMCIA  laptop.  Just curious.

BTW, I did get pcmcia working by building pcmcia-cs.
Now I only have to modprobe pcmcia, insmod serial_cs,  and copy only the 
files created by the serial-cs utility into place in the booted livecd 
system and then  `/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart`, and there it is!  
Easy script.
Now I'm working on dialup files. Cant get auth.
