Save your money, Jon.
If the slot is a 16-bit PCMCIA slot, you **CAN NOT** plug a 32-bit
CardBus card into it. As Stephen pointed out, there are bumps that will
stop you from slotting it in.
If you had a 32-bit slot and plugged a 16-bit card into it, the 32-bit
controller will fail over to 16-bit mode and everything will work.
