I have the same card and was running using it up until a few months ago.
It's now in the spare-parts box for the moment ;-)

Here's the trick: The software that cam with the card can also reconfigure
the mouse. There are two address ranges (sorry, don't remember that they
were), and I'm getting the impression that the secondary range is the
default. The unfortunate thing is that the driver in the kernel only has
the primary address defined. Therefore, you must either boot to DOS (eew)
and change it (barring any conflicts, of course), or you have to modify
the kernel code.

If you either don't have the software anymore or don't have a DOS system
handy, I can load it up on one of my systems and give you the secondary
address range.

Hope that helps,
