[lug] card detected but no eth1

I've been wrestling with this a couple days now and can't find the
problem. I installed a Netgear EA201 NIC and have had it working in the
past. But haven't used it in about 8 months.

dmesg is showing that the card is detected and echos the cards full
name. I've got it configed as a PNP. And the kernel is seeing it with
isapnp. setserial says it's there and shows the correct IRQ.
/proc/interrupts does the same, but only saying it's serial, not giving
it a device name. I can't get an eth1. Says "card not found", with
ifconfig. The IRQ isn't being used without the card in the slot. It's on
ttyS1 and I've tried setting S3 to make sure there aren't any conflicts
undetected by PNP but there is nothing in ttyS3 to begin with.

Anyone know where else I could look?
