That makes it difficult to get the card to work.

You might possibly find 4.7 easier in this case.  5.0 has completely
rewritten PC Card drivers, and it may be more difficult to get it to
work there.

No, you won't have /var/log/messages during installation.  dmesg will
be available via the Alt-F4 shell.  Do you need the card at install

fix it if you install 4.7.
