   This is generally because the memory is not mapped correctly -- typically
   due to a conflict with some other device.  For example, there may be
   another device at the same address, and there are known problems on some
   PCs when trying to use both 8-bit and 16-bit mappings in the same 128k
   range in the `I/O hole'.

Thanks for the info, but I'm not exactly sure what to do about that.
Can I control how the memory is mapped in any way (i.e., via kernel or
BIOS configuration options)?  Can I figure out what the conflicts are?

I have tried changing the PCIC_ISA_ALLOC_* kernel options to several
different values (0x300, 0x400, 0x600, I think) but the WaveLAN is
never detected.

Do I need to use the PCI-PCMCIA adapter instead?

If it helps, the entire probe is included below.  Note that there is a
symbios scsi controller that is not detected, because I removed that
from this particular kernel.

Again, thanks for any help.
