I've tried disabling ACPI in the kernel, turning on APM support in the
BIOS, and the combination of the two, and unfortunately the problem

However, I found this patch (the one at the very bottom of the page):

And after adapting it to the kernel, everything works again!
I've rebooted the machine several times, and the 3com cards initialized
successfully every time.

I'm CC'ing linux-kernel in the hopes that this fix can make it into the
mainstream kernel sometime soon.  I'm sure my mother would appreciate it
greatly. :)
