It's strange, but a day later the card started working and the driver
lights up the correct led. I haven't seen the problem since. All I
can figure is that recompiling the kernel instead of using the stock
kernel, or inserting pcmcia cards in a different order changed
If I can find a way to reproduce it I'll let you know. In the mean
time I'll just attribute it to Heisenberg.
Thanks for the response.
