I experienced that some MP2100 have a pcmcia slot with inner metal
slider which tend to "float".
Infact on one unit of MP2100 i had problems when inserting a 3Com
ethernet card, a EZ2VGA card,
on a 320MB ata memory card and on a Pico card, but the same cards fit
perfectly on a unit of MP2000.

I solved the problem putting a thin piece of tape around the pcmcia
plug of the above mentioned cards.
The tape made the overall dimensions of the cards a bit thinner, so
that they could be inserted fine.
