RedHat Setup

Setting Up redHat on a TM4000M T.I., using the two boot disks, got message "unrecognized blah blah in socket 1". Then, after uncompressing the pcmcia.cgz file and verifying that a pcmcia card really similar is supported, I inserted a new setup entry in the supported hardware file. However, when booting again from that floppy (I think I cpioed and gziped the file right), I get that a dreaded message that tells me that the something is not working (appearently, the archive is not compressed the right way and the system is no longer able to load the core pcmcia module).
The core driver loaded fine before the disk was patched. Therefore there is an error in compressing the patch (of the form of the patch I'm sure). I HATE pcio and I supose that the error lies there. How am I suposed to recompress the files of the patch and place them back in place ?
remember :RedHat compressed filesys.(slackware rules!:)

RedHat has acknowledges a problem with their PCMCIA boot disk.  They have a different one available on their home page in the errata section:
