Based on my experience, asking (or even training) non-technical types to
remove a PCMCIA card is like asking them to make a change to the registry.
They will eventually get frustrated and stop using that feature.

Agreed. W2K does handle this situation better. Then again, in my so called
"perfect world", all companies would have unlimited IT budgets and be able
to send Microsoft huge licensing fees. Then I could configure all the road
warrior types with W2K and IPSEC. :-)
