[excuse me to answer myself]

I solved my problem by modifying the pcmcia config file located in the
boot RAM filesystem, before it gets used.

I used Linux expert mode in new debian installer (doesn't seem to be
available in beta2 version).

Let the tool autoload drivers then go to the command line
- cd /etc/pcmcia
- mv config.opts config.opts.old
- sed "s/, port 0x800-0x8ff//" config.opts.old > config.opts
