None It's a flaky BIOS problem 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Re: Question TP390X, 512MB, and PCMCIA (Andrew Newton)

I know what's wrong.  The ThinkPad BIOS configures the CardBus bridge
at address 0x10000000 regardless of how much memory is installed.
This address happens to equal 256MB, so if you've got 512MB installed,
the bridge is configured to sit in the middle of your system memory.

Get the latest (09-Feb-00) beta PCMCIA package from sourceforge.org in 
/pcmcia/NEW, and set:

    CORE_OPTS="cb_mem_base=0x20000000"

in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia and it should work with 512MB installed.
