NetFPGA with Notebook
I tested the NetFPGA-1G-CML board with my laptop via a PCMCIA-to-PCIe adapter if it's running. I use the PE4L-EC060A converter from Bplus company. My test is succesful on very short time. You will consume very short time than setting up NetFPGA within a desktop computer. The materials you need are listed below:
My host laptop model is HP-ProBook-6450b and I have to use a 34-to-54 PCMCIA bracket passive device. On the PE4L-EC060A board there are PCB notes layer how to configure the jumpers and switches. My switch configuration and fixed running with NetFPGA-1G-CML board configurations are SW1 PERST# Delay position:1-Disabled and SW2 PCIe card position: 2-3 (x2,4,8,16). (Because NetFPGA-1G-CML board PCIe interface is PCIe x4) No extra power supply needed. It's very easy. And the jpegs are below too.

Have develop your own open platform network with your mobile host PC and mobile NetFPGA !!!
