Sad RBE-100 freezes system on startup and insertion

hi there. I am running Red Hat 6.2 on an IBM Thinkpad 600e. If my RBE-100 is inserted when I boot up the system freezes around the sendmail startup point. If I boot up without the card, it all starts fine, however if I insert the card at any time after that,I hear 1 beep and the system freezes.

Here's an excerpt of the log.

"Jul 6 17:17:29 localhost keytable: Loading system font:

I have tried with Tulip and cs 89. I'm sure I must be missing something basic.

Hope you can help me..
