So, I'm pretty convinced at this point that the killer is that the
motherboards I can come up with (ASUS P2L-97, Tyan Thunder 2, both 440LX)
are having serious ISA mapping problems.
So, it occurs to me: Does anyone use *CardBus* adapters? My cardbus
laptop is working beatifully with the ray0 card. A PCI<->CardBus adapter
would probably work for me. *sigh*.
For that matter, anyone know if USB<->CardBus readers are supported in
-current? :) I know it sounds insane, but it's cheaper than the
PCI<->CardBus adapter I've seen.
I don't suppose there's an easy way to debug problems with getting access
to 64k of ISA memory on a system that *really* doesn't seem to be able to
allocate it? !@*# box "reserves" memory for ISA space, then gives me all
ffff's, or just never notices incoming packets, or *something*, and this is
turning into a huge timesink.
