350 Aironet...Again

I got a "new" laptop recently and installed Slack 9 via NFS without incident. I then compiled the 2.4.21 kernel and all went well and I was as happy as could be. After a few tries installing Dropline, it worked and I was even happier. Then I tried inserting my Cisco Aironet 350 wireless card and all hell broke loose.

I had issues with this card in the past, which I remedied with a firmware downgrade. This fix did not help my current problem. In the past I used the 2.4.20 kernel, and I used a stock kernel. I found someone with a similar problem, and they attributed it to missing ISA support in the kernel, but my kernel has ISA support enabled. I am at a loss as what to do. Here is the dmesg output:

Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22

airo: Probing for PCI adapters

Any help is greatly appreciated. If any more info is needed I will supply it. By the way, I have installed the latest Cisco Linux drivers.
Thank you
