Try this options:
[*] Support for hot-pluggable devices
<*> PCMCIA/CardBus support
[*]   CardBus support

Shit it seems, that the new driver did'nt make it into 2.4.4.
Try 2.4.4-ac7
linux-2.4.4$ bzcat ../patch-2.4.4-ac7.bz2 |patch -p1
<M>   Xircom CardBus support (new driver) (NEW)

Forget everything about pcmcia-cs, and use hotplug.
(delete pcmcia-cs-package, or disable it)

There's a new driver and a new tool/skript to support
this card. 
It works without ifconfig promisc, and also very great with
dhcpclient, if you modify net.agent a little bit.
