It seems that the developer of the driver - Adrian Knoth - has
two versions: one that works for me, and one that works for
another user. 

AFAICS, the problem is with the code that identifies the card
as an RPM, Multiface or Digiface, and that triggers ths HW into
accepting the firmware. Once past this point everything works
perfectly, including switching the phone preamps etc.

I've use it with both Cardbus and ExpressCard.

One more user would probably help...
