I used to use a DELL-rebrand Cisco 4800LT in my AS200 a couple years 
ago. Then it was no longer necessary for awhile. For about the last 
year or so, when I insert the PC Card into the alpha, about 1/2 of 
the PCMCIAVERBOSE messages show in the console and the machine hangs. 
When I remove the card, the rest of the messages show and the machine 
comes back to life (complete with the detach message). The card works 
fine under MacOS on my PowerBook 3400 with Cisco's drivers
