So the consensus seems to be that no one really knows if the CL-PD6730 PCCard controller is supported? I find this difficult to believe. But, as long as the mini-dock's PCCard slots work, I'm not totally isolated. The only problem being that the mini-dock is at work and I want to network the notebook and my home PC together. Looks like I'm stuck with Windows NT there.

I though of this a while ago and dismissed the idea for a couple of reasons: 1) I did not think PCI devices needed an IRQ assigned to them, they were supposed to autoconfigure.
It should, that's why I flagged it. If it's requesting an IRQ and not getting one that would be a major problem.
2) The LINT kernel config file does not have any configuration information listed for the card or pcic controllers.
Looking on this laptop, it's in PCCARD, not LINT.
3) I did not bring this up for fear of confusing the issue but, the notebook has a port replicator that has two more PCCard slots. FreeBSD will find the second PCI bus and detect the second controller. pccardc can find these slots. The controller is identified at boot also as a 6729/30, but a different revision. I am reasonably sure FreeBSD cannot use both controllers at once, which is not what I want anyway. I want to be able to use the two slots internal to the notebook when it is not docked in the port replicator.
It should auto-configure, as long as you reboot it when you change setups.
PC-Card Cirrus Logic PD672X (5 mem & 2 I/O windows) pcic: controller irq 9 Initializing PC-card drivers: ed ep sio
Please note, the second controller (pcic1) is found at IRQ 9 without being specifically configured. What bothers me is that the message third from the bottom of the list. It specifically says PD672X, no mention of the 6730. Which brings me back to the original question. Is the 6730 not properly supported by pccardd?
It's quite possible. I honestly can't say though. I do know that my 7-something one in my Digital HiNote doesn't work tho :(
