And I must add that the error messages are very similar to those on I got
on TI PCI1410
wifi0: init command completed too quickly - retrying
prism2_hw_init: initialized in 1 ms
prism2_enable_aux_port(1) timed out

You cannot flash it because the flash is very short - it can only hold the
PDA and the CIS.
If the card works in Windows on the same machine, it's very encouraging
because it shows that the problem is in hardware, not in software.
The workaround it to use a different PCMCIA bridge, such as plx9052 based
one (such as Linksys WDT11), which worked on that "bad" machine where TI
and Ricoh bridges didn't work.
