What driver version are you using?
The current driver has a check to prevent a missing card from triggering
spurious error messages, such as reporting a PCI Bus error.
That code has been in the driver since the Cardbus support was added. There
was a bug fix in v1.08s about six months ago:

Use CONFIG_SMP/CONFIG_MODVERSIONS to set __SMP__/MODVERSIONS.
Include the correct spinlock.h file based on kernel version.
Various documentation wording improvements.
Remove the bogus SiS 900 and SiS 7016 table entries.
Add the PCI_HOTSWAP flag to support CardBus cards.
Corrected the no-hardware status from 0xffffffff to 0xffff.
Call dev_close(dev) instead of rtl8129_close(dev) when the card is detached.
