    I have a very olf TPI laptop that I just installed Win 98 on over Win 95.
    Right now in device manager under PCMCIA socket there is listed 'Cirrus PCI
    to PCMCIA bridge'. The laptop has a pcmcia modem card that is recognized as
    soon as it is inserted. I tried to install my 3com megahertz LAN card on the
    laptop. Went to add HW wizard, have disk etc. Afterwards I insert the card
    and nothing. It's not recognized whatsoever by the laptop. The card is not
    shown as existing in device manager. COuld it be that the BIOS is too old?
    Any ideas?
