Do you mean to say that the ISA->PCMCIA boards are faulty? Or did you mean that the current versions of the driver(s) have difficulty with these boards?

Can you recommend a better ISA->PCMICA board? This one was not very expensive and I'd be happy to spend money for one that would work...

Will do. Thanks for putting together a very good web page on this subject!

  The Pcmcia package doesn't interact well with those adapters and the machine BIOS. I think you can't pin-point the blame on one, but usually the software is supposed to work around the hardware...

None The PCI->PCMCIA adapters are the tricky ones

The ISA->PCMCIA boards are not troublesome; the PCI->PCMCIA boards are
troublesome.
