At boot time the PC110 hard disk is owned by the BIOS and sort of expects
to stay owned by the bios (the APM shutdown dies horribly if someon else
takes over the disk). That causes a minor Linux problem too, except that
fortunately the Linux driver is clever enough to spot the fact the card is
already initialised and take a hands off approach to that one slot.

Does Lose95 have any kind of "exclude this slot" option in its PCMCIA config
