i have a thinkpad 390x for work. it's got the "thinkpad port replicator with advanced etherjet feature" -- the eepro100 driver works for this -- (for the office) and a 3com "10/100 lan+56k modem" -- 3ccfem556b -- (for the road). it came with 64m ram. everything worked fine with the 2.2.14 kernel and pcmcia-cs 3.1.9.
recently, i got an upgrade to 512m ram. the ethernet card in the port replicator still works, but i see an interesting message in /var/log/messages:
"steinmetz kernel: Intel PCIC probe: <5> Bad bridge mapping at 0x10000000"
when i remove the tp from the port replicator though, and boot up with the 3com card, the card does not work, even after an upgrade to pcmcia-cs 3.1.10. i get the following messages in /var/log/messages:
"steinmetz kernel: Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.10
steinmetz kernel: kernel build: 2.2.14 #2 Fri Jan 21 19:41:51 EST 2000

steinmetz kernel: not found.
steinmetz kernel: ds: no socket drivers loaded!
steinmetz cardmgr: starting, version is 3.1.10
steinmetz cardmgr: no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices

i configured the pcmcia-cs package with cardbus card support, but without "trusting" versions. i tried it with and without the pnp bios resource checking.
any ideas about what might fix this problem? is it just user brain damage?
