A couple of questions:
 * Do you actually have the Neponset board (SA1111)?  I'm not sure we've
   tested it much with that in place.
 * Does this 'won't go ready' happen all the time?  I've seen it happen
   with some cards, but only after they've been initialized once (after
   a reset)

You could try adding some messages in the CF ethernet driver code to try
and figure out what's happening and why it might be failing.  Of 
interest might be the CIS data which gets read by that driver.
