Sounds like your card is recognised as being some sort of PCNET variant,
but you will need to build a "binary-modules" target from the 3.1.25
source.  The pcmcia-cs source will build either or both packages for you
- take a look at the debian/rules file for what targets are valid.  From
memory I think you want "binary-modules" and "binary-cs".
