have _not_ tested the following stuff on my own, since after reading
about those struggles w/ the sandisk combi-card, I refused to buy
one, too (using a dual pcmcia-jacket + 0815-prism25 instead).

later, I stumble across this:

    Sandisk Connect Plus w/ 128MB flash  - prism3
      (due to tech support)
        the 128MB card uses a different chipset (prism3) than the original wireless-only card
      (WillLehman - November 2005)
        have this card working with an Ipaq 3850 (although others will work as well) running Familiar 0.8.2
        Basically you have to install three packages:
          hostap-utils_0.3.7-r0_arm.ipk
          prism3-firmware_1.8.3-r2_arm.ipk
          prism3-support_1.0.0-r0_arm.ipk
        Erase all references to SanDisk devices in /etc/hostap_cs.conf and add:
          card "SanDisk ConnectPlus 128M"
          version "SanDisk", "ConnectPlus"
          manfid 0xd601, 0x0101
          bind "hostap_cs" to 0
          #bind "ide-cs" to 1
        add to /etc/modules.conf
          options hostap_cs ignore_cis_vcc=1

last "options hostap_cs ignore_cis_vcc=1" depends on IPAQ´s 3V-only cf-slot, I´d guess;
but, has anyone tried to include the disabled line

   bind "ide-cs" to 1

...with success, a ka have both wifi + flash working same time?
