Have you tried power cycling between reboots?

I have found this problem on my IBM Thinkpad 240, as I recall if I
reboot from FreeBSD (3.4 I think) to Win98 (or maybe the other way
around) it won't initialise the PCMCIA card.

I guess something somewhere gets into a strange state and the card
doesn't get initialised properly.
