I've used my 3C574 card (I don't recall if it is the B version or not,
but it isn't the newer TX version) in my Dell i8k and my Sony PCG-Z1WA

Sounds like a possible resource conflict. Ugg, damn. I thought I'd

Can you send me a dmesg output? This smells like a resource issue,
but it is hard to know for sure.
