In a nutshell - is there a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card that can go in the bottom
In more detail, i've got a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop with two PCMCIA slots.
I'm about to install wireless networking, including a Netgear PCMCIA
Wireless card which needs to go in the top slot.

I know I could just install the USB2.0 card and use a Netgear wireless usb
dongle, but I think that will stick out way too far - I'd much rather have
the configuration above.
Any help much appreciated
