Sad These cards are not really NE2000 compatible

If they were really NE2000 compatible, then the vendor would not need to distribute a modified driver. I've looked at the changes they've made, and they are substantial enough that they cannot be easily folded into the regular 8390/NE2000 driver. So, you are going to have to convince them to update their driver for later kernels. It is unlikely that the PCMCIA package will include support for these cards any time soon.
