If it's a rebranded Linksys card, I've got the latest PCMCIA and tulip
code and a Linksys cardbus card and it works fine on a Micron Transport
XKE.  I couldn't get it to work without BOTH of these updated software
packages.  get the PCMCIA code from hyper.stanford.edu and the 0.91e
version of tulip.c from Donald Becker's web page.
