pcmcia nic problems

im using an NEC infomover 4100 pcmcia nic . nettrap detects it as a
ne2000 , when i do a io-net -dne2000 i get repeated over and over

have to do a demo on monday and i would really like to have a working
laptop with a nic connection so i can do last minute updates to my
embedded thingy that im demo’ing
