There has been a long-standing struggle with this card.
I and others have attempted cursory modifications to the prism2 driver to force 3.3v onto it during setup for a PCMCIA adapter that didn't want to automagically supply it. I believe these efforts have been to no avail.
But the card most certainly isn't Cardbus.
There are reports of it running in a Tuxscreen (tuxscreen.net) which is a 16-bit PCMCIA slot that is only capable of 3.3v power.
I'd love to have something definitive regarding the situation and if there is any possible way to work with it like the "ignore_vcc" feature of the other driver.
