I may have missed it earlier in the thread, but have you checked the 
contents of /proc/interrupts to see if any interrupts are shared, 
especially with your air2pc card?  May not explain your 5 minute 
initialization, but you never know.

Nothing unusual in /var/log/messages from the air2pc driver during bootup?
