Any way you look at it, the problem is the Ricoh bridge.   If you havent
tried it...  put "pci=biosirq" on the boot prompt, this can help...  there
is several other things that might also help.  use external pcmcia and put :
"irq_mode=0 pci_csc=0 poll_interval=100" in the pcic opts of the pcmcia.
Try this along with pci=bioirq...   usually a combination of these will
solve the prob.  IF the prob CAN be solved.  Personnally i HAVE come across
hardware combinations that just WOULD NOT work, period.  Usually this was a
kernal version thing, and a later/earlier version WOULD work, something else
to try...

GoodLuck
