Use DACDR1 and DACDR2 directly. There is a sane inferface in 2.6

I used 'deb2tgz' and then simply 'tar xfvz', but that's not what you'd
want to do.

PCMCIA configuration problem. I consider it as a most serious
bug in the current kernel (together with the 5c080 problem) that
should be resolved ASAP.
