Hi, sorry for the late reply.

The card is Socket CF-LPE. I do have the Neponset attached, and the CF
card goes into the PCMCIA with a common CF to PCMCIA converter.

If it has not really been tested much (as opposed to it not working due
to some stupidity on my part :) ),
then I'll maybe try out adding messages to the driver code and testing.
