        I think this is impossible because all the USB PCMCIA cards are 32 bit
cards (a.k.a. "card bus"). The 2100 has 16 bit PCMCIA slots. Also, I
think Paul may be the only programmer around who could write the driver
for the card and he's busy with all his royal duties... :-). If you're
looking for faster synchronization, there's ethernet or WiFi or even

good luck,
