well, that would be pretty cool - but arenīt there limitations
about the maximum mamory size per pcmcia-slot? i heard about
32MB per slot. but if that is wrong - just imagine you could use
2 ibm-microdrives with 380MB per slot - well that would be
really cool. No more problem with to small flash cards :) or
just carry your complete mp3īs or data from office to everywhere

letīs see what will happen :)
