Default fedora core 4 and PCMCIA troubles

Dear forum members,

I have, I thought, installed Fedora Core 4 as Desktop on my laptop, Acer aspire 5670.
A great help was The Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 4, by Falko.

After I boot again Grub give me the chose
fedora core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp)
fedora core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
other (is de xp)

Since I don’t know the difference between the 2 Fedora chooses I enter on the first chose.

The boot hangs by the "Starting PCMCIA card services".

I restart the laptop with XP.
I check the PCMCIA devices in the config-system-hardware
They work normally and no drive updates found.

Texas Instruments PCIxx12 Cardbus Controller
Texas Instruments PCIxx12 Integrated FlashMedia Controller.

I reboot and try the second options on the bootmenu.

The same results. He did not past the starting the PCMCIA card-services.

I search the net and found a similar question on this site. Posted in Nov 2005.
Falko answered with
“When you boot your system, you should have the choice between a "normal" boot and a failsafe boot. Try to use the failsafe mode to see if the system comes up.

It seem I have not that chose and er is no further comments on that posting.

anyone that knows how to solve this?

Greetings Ab
