disk2.img and pcmcia.img are rather old ones and will not work
together with the latest Slinky versions.

Take the modules for slinky-0.5.05a / kernel-2.6.15 from:
It also holds the axnet_cs.ko module.

It seems that most questions to this list are about using slinky
with pcmcia.  Unfortunately I don't know how to handle this
correct. (didn't ever use it, have no hardware to test...)  When I
published new versions of the slinky installer I didn't necessarily
remove the old scripts - maybe somebode can still use them.

Kernel 2.6 modules are called *.ko not *.o.

Sorry, no tip but a wish:
It would be fine if you can find out how to activate the pcmcia-card.

Then please post the solution here and I will add it to Slinky.
