configuring linux-gpib for pcmcia-gpib card

I am attempting to get the linux-gpib package up and running, and have been running into a problem attempting to configure my pcmcia-gpib card.
It is a "measurement computing" card, and it seems to be using the cb7210 driver.

This the output when inserting the card:

Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr[3248]: socket 0: Measurement Computing PCMCIA-GP
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer kernel: cb7210_cs.c 0.11
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr[3248]: executing: './linux-gpib-pcmcia start cb_
gpib_cs 2>&1'
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr[3248]: + failed to bring board offline
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr[3248]: + failed to configure board
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr[3248]: + main: Invalid argument

I am currently using a 2.4.31 kernel under slackware 10.2, but am willing to load up any distribution/kernel to get this to work.
I am assuming I need to tweak something in the /etc/gpib.conf,
however I have yet to be able to find an example of one that uses my card.

I am hoping that someone else is already using this card successfully and can offer advice on getting mine up and running :-)
