Hi Michael,
    That's the problem of the configuration of pcmcia support package.  First
get a new version of tulip.c, at least 0.91 or later.  The file comes with
2.2.x kernel is too old.  Then you need to modify the source code of pcmcia to
enable pci interrupt which needed for card status and NWAY interrupts.  In
short, edit pcmcia-cs-3.0.xx/modules/i82365.c.  Search for string pci_csc, you
can see such lines
/* PCI card status change interrupts? */
static int pci_csc = 0;
/* PCI IO card functional interrupts? */
static int pci_int = 0;
    The default configuration is pci interrupts disabled, so change 0 to 1 the
enable these.  You can also use parameters of this module, but I'd like to set
it directly.  And pcmcia 3.0.10-3.0.12 don't work on my note, 3.0.13 is ok,
and I haven't tested 3.0.14 package.
    Hope you good luck.
