PC Card (PCMCIA) Troubles...

By peter.berger@genexsrvcs ·
"Windows is not able to identify or use the inserted PC Card device because there is no memory area available to communcate with the device. You must make a memory area available before this device can be used. Check your computer's CONFIG.SYS file for a memory manager that is excluding upper memory regions between A000 and FFFF."

Dell Inspiron 7000, Win98SE, 3Com 3ccm156b 56k modem. 64MB RAM.

Steps already taken:
Tried 2 different modems in both slots.
Deleted all networking/modems.
Reinstalled all networking & modems.
Checked config.sys (it is empty).
No device conflicts in Dev. Mgr.
No new software installed before error message started appearing.
Really stumped. Technet offers nothing. Please help... Thanks...
