[ale] 3COM PROB - Continues - Help Please



My problem with my 3COM problem continues, any help would be GREATLY
APPRECIATTED

Problem: System hangs during "boot" with new PCMCIA multi-function card.
=======

Background:
==========

-IBM ThinkPad 600
-Dual Booting Windows 5.2 and Macmillan RedHat 5.2 - new clean install
-Trying for almost a week to get a new 3com 3CXEM556B to work.
-Card installed great in WINDOWS, works perfectly, WINDOWS gave it IRQ 9,COM
3.

Things tried so far:
==============
-Re-Install of RedHat
- edited "/etc/pcmcia/config.opts" to add "exclude irq 3, irq 5, irq 7, irq
12, irq 15"
       - This was to force it to use IRQ 9 which was the only left and whic
it was not picking up
         otherwise.
      - This seemed to help, system still hung, but if I popped the card out
so it would continue to "boot"
         I could "cat /proc/interrupts" after "boot" was complete and it
looked like card was getting the
         IRQ 9.
-Booted with card out then inserted card.
      - No Joy, system did not detect card insert
-Booted with card out, put card it, entered "cardctl insert"
      -This locked the system up solid. But I could "pop" the card out and
it would respond. Put back in, it would lock up.
