I'd go about it the other way 'round;  Get a card stuck into a PCMCIA
port on a desktop or laptop, format it & stuff files onto it - then
figure out from that card (with those known files on it & your knowledge
of how DOS etc. do file structures), how Dos handles SRAM card file
info.  I'd guess it's treated just like a tiny IDE Hard Drive;  That's
the pattern I've seen from Flash cards, and a number of laptops can boot
from SRAM and/or Flash cards (IBM PC110, etc.)  Linux sources should be
good here, too...

http://www.pcmcia.org/ is a good place to look "For All Things PCMCIA",
of course;  Release 7.0 of the PC Card Standard may or may not have DOS
file structure info there for you.  I have a multitude of laptops here &
some PCMCIA SRAM cards as well, can help if you know what you want to
see from the laptop side of things.
