Problem initializing card

I recently upgraded my server (which runs hostap) to a dual athlon 1600 system. I had problems getting memory address space for pcmcia-cs, but eventually installed Win2K on the system and got the address spaces that Win2K used. The card is now recognized correctly and the hostap_cs driver is loaded. However, I get the following messages in dmesg: hostap_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL' hostap_cs: hostap_cs.c 0.0.0 2002-05-19 (SSH Communications Security Corp, Jouni Malinen)

hostap_cs: (c) SSH Communications Security Corp <>

hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (from config)

wlan0: hfa384x_cmd_issue - timeout - reg=0xffff

The last three lines are repeated. The card does not work. Any idea what the problem is? The card worked perfectly in my old system. The PCMCIA interface has not changed.
