Sad Toshiba 2105CDS and later pcmcia versions

I have a Toshiba 2105CDS with a Linksys 10/100 Fast Ethernet
PC card (model no. PCMPC100). It's a NE2000 clone.
SuSE6.3 with kernel 2.2.13 and pcmcia 3.3.3 works!

SuSE6.4 with kernel 2.2.14 and pcmcia 3.1.11 fails!
The /var/log/message for this combination is...

Unstalling pcmcia 3.1.11 and installing 3.1.14 or 3.3.15 from
SuSE's ftp site as rpms gives the following /var/log/message.

Cardmgr (?) now thinks the Linksys card is a memory card.
/var/state/pcmcia/stab also indicates a memory card.

Here is the /proc/pci info.
  Bus  0, device  19, function  0:
    CardBus bridge: Toshiba ToPIC97 (rev 7).
      Slow devsel.  Fast back-to-back capable.  Master Capable.  No bursts.  Min Gnt=128.Max Lat=4.                                                             

Unless I can make a simple change and get this working on
SuSE6.4 and pcmcia 3.1.11, I'm going back to SuSE6.3 since
I need to use pcmcia networking.

These were fresh installs, not upgrades.
