What did you add to the config file, exactly?  (what driver did you
specify?)  You could try either tulip_cb or epic_cb; tulip_cb would be
the more likely guess.  If those don't work, then this card would
appear to use an unsupported CardBus network controller (all the other
PCMCIA network drivers are strictly for 16-bit cards).

must or can I use this info for the Linux cardbus controller?

When I eject and re-imsert the card the following lines are in the message log.

None You are currently out of luck

Sorry, I should have looked more closely at your first message.

Linux currently does not support CardBus cards that do not provide any
product info.  There's no way to use this card at this time, even if
it uses a supported chipset.  This may change in the future, but that
is the way it is for now.
