None Not a kernel issue; maybe timing?

Ok, I'm a little confused about exactly what worked and what does not
work.  It sounds like the 3c589 card worked on this box with [some
earlier driver version].  I'd like to see the kernel messages from
that case.  And both cards work on another box, but you don't really
say how that box is different from the one that doesn't work.

As for the potential for an IO overlap, you cannot tell much by
looking at /proc.  Those files show what resources Linux knows are in
use.  But you can have a conflict with a device Linux doesn't know
about.  Excluding resources in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts is an easy
thing to try.  I suspect it won't help, but you should try.

I don't believe that changing kernels is likely to make any difference
at all.

Another thing to try is to load the pcmcia_core module with an option
like "io_speed=300" to change the timing of IO accesses.
