Are you sure?  It looks to me like epic_cb and serial_cb were loaded.

That would be wrong; pcnet_cs is a 16-bit driver and won't work with a
CardBus card.  But I think your addition was ignored.

This is your problem.  This card requires a big block of IO ports.
The error message is described in the PCMCIA-HOWTO; the solution is to
add a bigger IO port window to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, such as:

  include port 0x1000-0x17ff

See if that helps.
