Umm you need a cardbus IDE driver for the Sony (even a dumb one) then you
could get rid of all the pci=off type stuff. Currently anyone with one of
those laptops (if any are still working that is) is going to be a little
screwed with FC7 CD.

Wish someone had mentioned it earlier 8(

Anyone got an afflicted laptop and can send me an lspci -vxxx of it and
I'll see what I can do at short notice to at least get a PIO0 driver for it
