Thanks for your reply.  I did read through the archives prior to my
message, and you're right!  Lots of people have problems with SDIO

While I do look ahead with some trepidation to the problems I might face
with the firmware once I get it loaded, I think the problem I'm
reporting is really a precursor to that.  I cannot get the 8686 to even
completely load the helper firmware, much less boot it, still less
actually get to the point where I have a network device!  

So, as far as I can tell, the version of my firmware is irrelevant,
because it's not getting loaded.

Sure, happy to.  These files were provided to me by the manufacturer.
