I found a solution which will work with this card.

Proceed as normal up to and including configuring PCMCIA support. 

Press Alt-F2 to go to the shell window. Start the shell and cd /etc/pcmcia.
Using nano-tiny, edit the file config.opts, and uncomment the include line
near the top of the file, the one directly below the note that high port
numbers do not always work. Press Alt-F1, and re-do the PCMCIA configuration.
This will successfully load the driver. Proceed to "Configure the network",
and then "Install the base system".

The driver is part of the pcmcia-cs modules.
