Just some helpful (I hope) comments:

- The TMB-201-03 does work with Windows '95, but it forces Windows to run
*all* the drives in "MS-DOS Compatibility Mode," which seriously hurts disk
performance.  Windows does this because it doesn't know how to virtualize
the ThinCard Drive, and there aren't any 32-bit drivers for the TMB-201.  I
successfully ran a TMB-201 on my Win95 machine for a while until I upgraded
the PCMCIA card slot.

- Poqet bought their Flash cards from Intel, so the Intel card is a Poqet
card, for all intents and purposes.  It should work the same as a
Poqet-labeled card.
