(problem in dock'ed pcmcia card...)

Well, further occluding, and a not so satisfactory fix...

I took the card out and the silkscreen indicated that the card's real 
is 'EtherFast 10/100 PC Card" (model number PCMPC100.

I had an older 10 base T card which has on it's silkscreen, 'Ethernet 
Combo Card',
(combo here means has a coax spigot and a RJ45 connector).

That one actually works. So my current thought is that while the driver 
the existence of the card, from the pcmcia probe, there is some 
difference in
registers or values in registers which later cause the attach to fail. 
I'll look into
that later.
