I'm not real sure about that, but I know as of a couple of years ago
there was somebody selling a oneslot/typeI converter to
twoslot/typeII-typeIII.  Thing stick out of your computer and looks
lame, but provides that extra slot.  It isn't the pcmcia bridge that 
limits the number of connections.

All the best...
