How to make DOS recognize my PCMCIA card?

Specs: DOS
Hi folks, first time here. Searched the forums on DOS but couldn't find the answer. A friend gave me an old Toshiba Libretto 70, with Win98 installed and a floppy disk driver via PCMCIA. Unfortunatelly, the floppy driver doesn't work no longer. I could make Win98 recognize my PCMCIA adaptor do SD card. But DOS couldn't recognize it. And what I wanted to do with this laptop, was install DOS only on it, once I just want this to run old DOS games. What I thought I could do is boot the laptop from the PCMCIA slot and install DOS from this.

So, is there some driver for it?

Thanks for your help!

Hi man, thanks for the reply.

The boot priority options BIOS gives me are HDD>FDD or FDD>HDD. If I choose the last options, windows 98 keeps booting normally. :(
