We are, it appears, an ever-growing population of people with the same problem.
Perhaps we can form a support group? :-)

We're running RedHat 5.1.

Same here. Just to make it more fun, the card works occasionally. Sometimes,
you boot the system and it comes up just fine -- no problems whatsoever.
However, 95% of the time the NIC is simply dead. No error messages, no
IRQ conflicts ... just no data.

It would be nice to have more details about what "buggy" means.

Well, we're running pcmcia-cs-3.0.0 ... so my next step is to upgrade to
the current version (3.0.9). According to the release notes, there have
been improvements to the driver.
Thanks to David Hinds and crew for all their hard work in PCMCIA support!
