SP2 hangs with PCIBus card

I have a PCIBus with a Orinoco Silver network (PCMCIA) card installed on by
Dell PC. It is working fine before I install SP2.

Since installing SP2, Windows 'hangs' while booting up. If I remove the
PCMCIA card, still it does not work. It will only boot up when I remove the
PCIBus card => The card is causing the problem.

I have searched the card's website (Lucent Technologies) and Microsoft
website. But there is no article on the conflict.

Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks

Was the card pre-installed on the machine by Dell when you bought it?

Have you checked for updates (all) at
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx? Have you contacted
Dell Support?

Unfortunately I bought the card separately. I have also been to the Dell
site and checked all the updates. As I bought the card separately, there is
no update. I have updated BIOS but still it does not work.

:(

Sounds like you need a new, SP2-compatible card, James.
