I did try to play with bios (Phoenix) settings, configuring PCMCIA as Legacy
instead of PCI, and disabling OS/plug'n-play.

Now at boot time I get the following results:
pcic0 at isa0 port 0x3e0-0x3e1 iomem 0xd0000-0xd3fff: using irq 9
pcic0: controller 0 (Cirrus PD672X) has sockets A and B

pcmcia1 at pcic0 controller 0 socket 1
pcmcia2 at pcic0 controller 1 socket 0
pcmcia3 at pcic0 controller 1 socket 1
biomask c040 netmask c040 ttymask d2c2

At pcmcia0 query time I can see media-coupler leds Tx/On and Ln/Rx blink one
Nothing else append after that.

I enabled ne* PCMCIA network interface, but I cannot see it at boot time.
ifconfig -a isn't able to see it too.

Any suggestions?
