3Com Wireless LAN

I know there are other threads about gettings the xxxx196 series xjack cards to work, but my problem is slightly different. I have read about every tutorial out there, and have made done many successful makes of the drivers. However, when i restart pcmcia and networking, i still get a "bonk" on the card. I get no compile errors. Am i missing a key step?

Possibly, it might be as simple as a kludged /etc/pcmcia/blah.conf typo, what's the error output from the tail end of "dmesg" right after card insertion? What driver set are you using? Also, what's the output of:

/sbin/cardctl ident
