3c589c PCMCIA, Toshiba Tecra 700CT and Suse 6.3

I've been trying get this combination to work for some time.

All it will do is recognize the card as "Anonymous memory" ; I've tried
all sorts of memory ranges in config.opts, but without success.

If anyone has a config.opts that corresponds to something similar I
would appreciate a look at it (you may send it to me directly if you

rpm -q pcmcia

gives, pcmcia-3.1.3-2



1. Toshiba Tecra 700CT can't identify PCMCIA card (3C589C)

I have a Toshiba Tecra 700CT running Mandrake 6.1, with PCMCIA v3.1.  PCMCIA
starts okay, but when I insert a card (or during boot-up if the card is
inserted), I hear a low beep followed by a high beep.  I'm assuming that the
low beep means that the card can't be identified, as /var/log/messages shows
it as "Anonymous Memory".  The card, a 3Com 3C589C, is identified correctly
by the 3Com diagnostic utility in DOS.

I understand that changing the BIOS setting from Card Bus to 16-bit mode is
supposed to fix this, but I don't see any way of changing this from within
the BIOS (version 5.5).  I've tried to update to the current BIOS (v5.6),
but when I try this, I get an error that says it's not the right version of
Flash ROM.

Is there another way to change the BIOS setting, or is there a way I can
update the BIOS so that it provides this option?
