I believe you will have to get in touch with the CARDSOFT company, to see if 
they can help you.  My CARDWARE software did a self-install, and everything 
was fine and dandy with my cards.  It came with plenty of warnings about not 
messing with the settings or the cards would not be recognized.  Did you have 
to install it manually?  If so, then the problem is probably the settings.
I don't know whether the different drivers work with drives other than the 
ones they were designed for (yes, PCMCIA is supposed to be an accross the 
board standard, but I have heard that some manufactures take some leeway on 
implementing the standard).

I don't have any direct experience in this area (I don't own a Mac),
but you should be able to connect your Poqet to your Powerbook through
the serial connector that you have.  You won't be able to use
PoqetLink, but I believe there are several other programs which are
designed to transfer files between Macs and PC's.  Two programs that I 
remember (but I don't know if they're still available) are LapLink Mac 
(from Travelling Software) and MacLink Plus (I don't rememember who 
made that one).  These programs should have cables that will allow you 
connect your Powerbook to the serial cable of your Poqet PC.

If anyone else has more direct experience with file transfer between 
Macs and Poqet PCs, please feel free to jump in.

P.S.  When you get it working, Dennie, it would be great if you would
share your experiences with the rest of us.
