I've got one of these as well, but so far have been unable to get it
to work with any of the available drivers. Since I got my card, one
other person using it turned up on this list. He (but not I) was able
to get things to work with tulip-0.91x-ppc, a hacked version of the
tulip driver supplied with pcmcia-cs.

To make pcmcia-cs recognize the card, you need to tell it about the
changed ID: Copy the entry for the SMC from /etc/pcmcia/config to
config.opts and change the 0x2220 to 0x2225.

You will not make any new friends posting this kind of stuff to
Linux-related lists/newsgroups. In fact, it very nearly caused me not
to reply to your message.
