Well i dropped my lombard accidently, it fell from about 3' in sleep mode, in very padded samsonite laptop case, the when i took it out of the case i noticed that the battery had become disconnected. So i booted it up and it started fine. Except it no longer recognized my wifi card, nor my firewire card both of which worked previously. The lombard hangs when i boot it up in os 9 either card in. i looked at things in console and when i plug it in it produces this gets put in the system.log:

Jun 7 15:32:32 localhost kernel: IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 1): unable to create cardbus nub for socket 0

any ideas?
i'm typing this message on the powerbook.

Have you tried running the Di

Have you tried running the Disk Utility and checking the HD for errors?

PCMCIA Slots?!

are your firewire and wifi cards PCMCIA/Cardbus? Were the cards inserted when it fell? If so you totally broke the so-called "cage" that hold them.

Last night you said that part

Last night you said that part of your wifi card broke; that would be your problem! PC Cards aren't designed to be very durable, and it's very likely that the wifi card is never going to work again.
