Error stopping PCMCIA.

WARNING!  An error was detected when trying to stop PCMCIA support.  The most likely cause of this error is that one of the sockets could not be shutdown because a PCMCIA devise is currently in use.  Therefore, the shutdown is incomlete, and some kernel modules may not be unloaded.

DSL loaded on an HPpavilion ze5375us Laptop  2.4 Ghz 40 GB HD 512KB Ram -- though have had many errors trying to install MEPIS, Ubuntu and Kubuntu after a disastorous multi-partitioned HD/multi O/S done w/ Partition Magic in XP and an uncountable number of attempts of restoring a workable O/S.  Only DSL install to HD worked, but test of HD on startup still yields multiple errors.  

Beginning to believe this is a hardwarewith need to open up laptop and replace RAM &/v HD)  problem given XP error message of
"A problem has been detected and windows has beenshut down..."
regarding file
with specific error of

STOP 0X0000008E
AND 0X00000050
both seen at various times.

Perhaps this errors has more to do with fundamental hd problems.  Previous attempts to install DSL as ext3 failed where ext2 worked.  Do not know if that is important but numerous error message dealing with inodes and other faults pop up.

If anyone has come across an error like this before, please let me know.  Any and all help appreciated.  I'm a tyro at linux so please excuse any ignorance or obvious solutions on my part.

Upgrading system packages isn't supported... what are you trying to do any exactly though? (remember DSL is not regular debian)

I ran sudo apt-get upgrade in an attempt to bypass an error message when running synaptic for Debian 0.16 that yielded:
Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
after selecting DistUpgrade and Proceed! in synaptic

Problem may lie in the fact that I do not know how bad I messed up the HD.  Even after re-formatting w/ XP NFTS, Kubuntu ext3 and DSL ext2, running a check of the memory yields red red red.

Currently fstab reads
/dev/hda  /  ext2  defaults,errors=remount-ro  0  1
proc  /proc  proc  defaults  0  0
/dev/fd0  /floppy  vfat  defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022  0  0
/dev/cdrom mnt/auto /cdrom  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
# partitions found by dsl
#/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 ext3 noauto,users,exec 0 0

if that is of any help.
Considering removal of HD and inserting as slave in another computer, reformatting and then returning.

You're in the wrong forums - these forums are for DSL - if that's for Debian.

In any case, I don't get what you mean by memory's that is "red red red"
