Some cards wants ports below 0xfff, and make sure the
memory range you provide is actually available
(do a cat /proc/iomem to check that). If the memory
is allocated to cardbus (which happens on some machines
which pre-configure the cardbus bridge from OF), it will
not be userable by pcmcia

I'd also suggest you update your kernel as some pcmcia
fixes were lost around 2.4.16 and recovered later during
2.4.17-pre cycle, yours may still lack them.
