what pcmcia-cs pkg are you running? The latest is now 3.1.14.
Port and memory range in config.opts?
Comment all memory ranges out except the 0x90000000-0x90ffffff.
In the port range you have to play/figure out what's the best one for
Some simple cards are happy with 0x0-0xfff, others need a higher range.
E.g. 0x400-0x4ff or 0x1000-0x10ff
or 0x100-0x1ff.
Are you running PCMCIA or CardBus cards?
Are modems involved?
