None Compex/ReadyLINK 10Mbps Ethernet card: kernel `Oops' on insert

Hi,

When I inserted a Compex/ReadyLINK 10Mbps Ethernet card
 in to a   Sony Vaio  notebook 
(Kernel 2.2.12, PCMCIA package 3.0.14)  (same problem with a 
Winbook XL - Linux Kernel 2.2.13, PCMCIA package 3.0.14), 
the kernel gave the following error mesage 

'Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference ...'

Also, the kernel reports an `Oops' caused by the card manager.

I'd be happy to hear any advice.

thanks in advance,

david

There are a couple of bogus entries in the 3.0.14 /etc/pcmcia/config:
some cards that use the tulip_cb driver also happen to have the same
product ID as your card, and as a result, this Cardbus driver is being
loaded for your 16-bit card.

Go into /etc/pcmcia/config, and find the entries for manfid 0x8a01,
0x0100 that specify the "tulip_cb" driver, and comment them out.
