Good luck. Those cards are somewhat weird, and last time I tried they
only alsmost worked with the wi driver. Are there any documentation
that suggest that they do work (other than the source)?

I had similar problems with a ThinkPad, and the solution was to change
the start of rbus memory in i386/i386/rbus_machdep.c (search for
1G). There's an option and a patchable variable for this
(RBUS_MIN_START and rbus_min_start respectibely), I *think* in both
1.5 and current.
