Use PCMCIA instead of CardBus?

I have an older laptop (AMS TravelTech w/ K6-3+/333) and a Microsoft MN-520
WLAN adapter. I want to put FreeBSD on it, but I'm having a lot of trouble
with the card not being recognized after the infamous errors:
CIS is too long -- truncating
pccard0: Card has no functions!
cbb0: PC Card card activation failed
The same setup can boot NetBSD and Linux to get full use of the card by
disabling the Cardbus drivers in favor of the PCMCIA ones (ie, by running
"config" on NetBSD and typing "disable cbb", or by building a custom Linux
kernel with the appropriate settings). I can't seem to get the same
results from FreeBSD, though. Any suggestions?
