400k card - good thats the same one I have. If you have the correct firmware installed you should have a directory called '/lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4' with some files in it. Specifically SVST4_4.BIT, SVST4_6.BIT, and SVST4_12.BIT.
The current pncconf has a small problem in that it is using different names for the firmware for this card, it is using SV4_4.bit instead of the real firmware name so the system doesn't find it and can't load it. You need to create symbolic links. In a terminal do this.

sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4/SVST4.BIT /lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4/SV4.BIT
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4/SVST6.BIT /lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4/SV6.BIT
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4/SVST12.BIT /lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4/SV12.BIT

Now, when you start emc the firmware should load. You can tell it loaded if two LEDs go out and you only have the amber one left lit on the 7i43.

I got to send the firmware, the problem is really this name "SVST4" was wrong, but now I can follow with my project.
Thank you.
Tell me what kind of machine do you have, milling or turn?
