A few things:

You're trying to use a driver for a PCI card (tlan) bbut you have a
PCMCIA card.  This is bound to fail.

The Compaq Netelligent PCMCIA card is not a tlan at all; it's
supported by the xirc2ps_cs driver according to the file SUPPORTED.CARDS
from pcmcia-cs.  Which leads me to a question:

Have you installed pcmcia-cs (the card services) and the appropriate
pcmcia-modules package?  You want pcmcia-modules-2.4.18-bf2.4, I

Once you've installed those packages, inserting the card should load
the driver.
