Wrong PCMCIA card type detected at boot (only)

On a Toshiba Satellite 4030CDT (with ToPIC97 bridge) and "Xircom CE3-
10/100 Fast Ethernet" PCMCIA ethernet card, the following happens:
When booting with the card inserted, it is recognised as "Anonymous
Memory" (and so fails to operate normally).
When inserting the card at a later stage, it is recognised correctly and
it functions normally.
I had to add the "poll_interval=100" when installing RH5.2 (then it worked
I had to add "do_scan=0" to prevent RH6.2 hanging on booting pcmcia.
This is a known problem with certain Toshiba laptops; with the absence of
technical help from Toshiba I do not think this will ever get fixed.
If this is a hardware issue, then why was the ethernet card recognized
correctly when booting RH5.2 and isn't it recognized correctly when booting
