Very strange problems with a Compaq and Hostap

This is very strange, and the first time I see it. It seems hostap cannot 
initialize the pcmcia card. It show the following messages:

hostap_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
hostap_cs: hostap_cs.c 0.0.0 2002-10-12 (SSH Communications Security Corp, 
Jouni Malinen)
hostap_cs: (c) Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at>
hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (constant)
hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (from config)
Checking CFTABLE_ENTRY 0x01 (default 0x01)
IO window settings: cfg->io.nwin=1
io->flags = 0x0046, io.base=0x0000, len=64
hostap_cs: RequestIRQ: Resource in use
: card already removed or not configured during shutdown
release - done
hostap_free_data: ap has not yet been initialized - skip resource freeing

What does it mean?

The server is a COmpaq Proliant 330, SMP capable but with just one CPU. The 
BIOS is very strange, IRQs must be assigned by hand...

Does anyone konws is this a Linux IO-APIC related problem (it's enabled)?
