[rescue] Cisco pcmcia cards

Cisco 1605 does NOT use ATA Flash....

It uses "Intel flash".... all the ones I have seenare 
labelled "Intel Series 2+".

1605R is a nice little router... you decide to give it up let me know :-)

Depending on what you are going to run for an IOS on it, you may need as
little as 8Meg, but as much as 16Meg or higher.

I don't recall if the 1605R supports internal flash SIMMs... which if it
does and there are some in there you won't need a flash card at all
(although I seem to recall all the 1600 series I've ever used had flash
cards, so maybe the 1600 series routers didn't have internal flash simms
like most other Ciscos.... my memory of these is getting rusty).

Hope you have access to IOS images.... without that, your sunk.

Good luck,

 -- Curt
