What laptop are you using? I will show you how a boot disk for a Sony Vaio 505TX is made and that might help.
LH A:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:ASPICD0 /M:12 /V /L:Z
DEVICE=\sys\himem.sys /testmem ff
REM the following section is used for setting up PCMCIA Service Driver
REM which is necessary for 3rd Party PC-Card (Ricoh Chipset)
REM This is the Adaptec 1460 PCMCIA SCSI card driver
DEVICE=A:\PCMCIA\ASPI2DOS.SYS /D /PCMCIA /Z
REM This is the CDROM driver
If you aren't using a SCSI card you can delete or replace the interface driver with the proper one. You will also need ot replace the CDROM driver with the DOS version for your own. The tricky part is where the Ricoh chipset section is. You need the properdrivers or in your case Cardsoft. One indication the slot drivers are loaded properly is the beep you should hear. To simplify, load slot drivers, then the interface card drivers then the CDROM drivers. I hope this helps and doesn't further confuse you. Email me with your autoexec.bat and config.sys if you still have problems.
