I have a problem with the PCMCIA socket in a notebook. I installed windows 95 and i need to know if i need to use any PC CARD MANAGER like PHOENIX PLUS running in CONFIG.SYS and if i need that exclude mem line after EMM386 (Ex.: X=00CC-CCFF).
Additionally please tell me the steps to install under Win95 the PCMCIA socket.
The socket has been installed and it is working but when using a ethernet card the network breaks down.
I fear it has something to do with the pcmcia socket.
If any extra software necessary (other than windows 95) please recommend the best and the latest! Thanks.

this is important, DISABLE any dos drivers for PCMCIA, ie config.sys, autoexec.bat.
if u upgraded over windows 3.x, rename ur win.ini & system.ini
copy c:\windows\*.cb to c:\windows\*.ini
reboot.
use ctrl+esc to get ur startmenu, go to control panel, add new hardware. run it.
comment here if any more problems but give details of make/model of laptop & system specs including BIOS manufacturer/date/version number.
