I've now found out I didn't even need to disable all of the other stuff,
it works just as well.  It only seems to work in one of the two PCMCIA
slots... make sure you double-check both seperately.

My relevant rc.conf entires are as follows:

pccardd_flags=3D" -i 10"

I believe that the first line (ifconfig_ep0) is irrelevant due to the
pccard_ifconfig but I could be wrong.  It works so I'm leaving it there.
I ran the DOS-based 3Com configuation utility.  I downloaded it from the
Internet (mail me if you can't find it and I'll email it to you).  This
showed me that the NIC was using irq 10 (hence the pccardd_flags=3D" -i
10") - this may be different for you so I suggest you try the utility.

  Hope that's some help,
