"Recently, I've come to really appreciate small projects in the GNU/Linux community and the dedication of the maintainers of these projects. With all the distribution companies touting their latest releases, sometimes we forget about the dedicated little guys who maintain portions of GNU/Linux and quietly crank out quality code."

"An excellent example of such a project is the Linux PCMCIA Card Services project hosted on SourceForge.net. In the past two months, I've converted two laptops to Linux for use on our local area network, and without the use of the documentation and patches offered at the Linux PCMCIA Card Services project, I would have been lost."

"In this article, I'm going to walk you through the installation of PCMCIA cards and drivers on two laptops with two completely different cards, neither of which is officially supported by Linux. You'll be surprised at how easy it is if you just know where to look for answers."
