forcing irq on PCMCIA device

ENV: linux Version: Mandrake 8.1, PCMCIA card: longshine lcs-8534TB.
(supported according the PCMCIA docs)
laptop is P-II lifetec

PCIC=i82365 ( found via probe -m )
PCIC_OPTS="cs_irq=11 pci_irq_list=11,11 do_scan=0" ( you see i want to force irq 11 )

cat /dev/interrupts BEFORE running /etc/rc.d/init.t/pcmcia start ( in
maintenance mode )
0: 85822 XT-PIC timer

cat /dev/interrupts AFTER running /etc/rc.d/init.t/pcmcia start ( in
maintenance mode )
0: 48004 XT-PIC timer
1: 426 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
8: 1 xT-PIC rtc
13: 0 XT-PIC i82364
14: 3461 XT-PIC ide0, i82365
NMI: 0
ERR: 0

What ever i try, irq 13 is always taken. And why is there also a relation with irq 14?
I get a lot of error on the HDA. Eventualy the systems become horrible slow and locks up.

Windows 98 on this system works perfectly. But i want 100% linux on this machine with network support.
any help is welcome.
