I have the Rev.B1 card, but i said that someone (Marcos) has a problem with 
the E1 and I saw some things that may be useful to me (the load of a 
secondary firmware). Is that correct?? I have to load this firmwares in the 
REV. B1 (my card) to get the driver started?

Thanks for the language reference James ;)

reference Rev E1 and E.  Which one do you have?
