I have that exact same problem with my laptop. I have a Thinkpad 755CSE and
an IBM "Ethernet II" PCMCIA card. I also have the "Dock II" with the
built in SCSI controller and another ne200 card I added. When the laptop is in
the dock the pcmcia card is seen but then I get the same failure message as
you. When the laptop is out of the dock the card works just fine. I
never did find a fix.
This was with NetBSD 1.4.x and possibly 1.5. I could do testing of a fix
perhaps but the machine currently has Lose95 on it, and the hard drive will
spin on a good day. Floppy boot should be OK, though.
