Try with the newest kernel and without pcmcia-cs, which has been
deprecated since years now.

Upgrade to 188.8.131.52, install pcmciautils and uninstall or disable
pcmcia-cs. Then see what happens. Maybe it will work. Note that
you'll likely need ISA support enabled since this is a PCMCIA card,
and not a Cardbus card, which appears as PCI devices.
