I'll try to find the differences between you kernel (is it exactly as in 
CVS?) and mine, since usb-storage works for me. Only usb networking is

Again, works for me - CF, pcnet_cs, serial_cs, airo_cs. Here's a patch 
relative to linux-2.6.7. I intend to follow the linus kernel, rather 
than handhelds kernel. Maybe even start feeding changes upstream 
(pcmcia, rmk, input).

I still have no solution for the USB problem, and I tried all that I can 
think of. If anyone else'd like to look at this, I think it could be 
useful, in case I missed something really obvious.

Maybe you should look into getting a PCMCIA - SD adapter, since SD (or 
MMC) do wear leveling in hardware, so failures are much less likely.
