Thats interesting, because I bought the same Express card few days ago for my Acer Aspire 8920G, and I have the same exact problem. I thought its the problem of windows vista, but from your post it I don't think its anymore because you are running XP.
I guess I will return the card and I suggest you do the same, and try another brand Express Card.
A CTP Panel allows up to 8 comm lines (01-08) for an RS3 controller (A-H). Each controller then allows you to address jumper four FIMS per comm line (A-D) in a daisychain. Depending on which comm line you use and which address you have jumpered, will automatically define your FIM address and the addresses of the 16 points to be configured on your FIM.
I agree with Don, you need to know what you already have hanging from the controller. Type FS (FIC Status) to show what you have configured in all of the theoretical 32 FIM positions. Drop me an email if you need specific help, we are RS3 experts!
