Thanks for the update. We ended up deciding to go with PASCO's PCMCIA
(I'm sure that it's simply a relabled other commercial unit, although
they said specifically
that it's not Belkin's) as they will support it. Can't have a classroom
full of students waiting
around while I have laptops rebooting, and rebooting trying to get things
to work. Besides,
it's not really my $$$$, I don't teach in the town I live in.
