Is yours a version 1, Dave?
Seeing as you have the latest ROM and it still isn't working for you, I'm just trying to judge the likelihood of this being the sole issue preventing my V3 card from working with the backplane, or if there may be further issues. If yours is a earlier version of the card, perhaps that is affecting compatibility in your case. If it isn't an older card then that scuppers my speculation!
Something else I need to check again later to be sure, but there seems to be a peculiarity with my card in that it does not seem to have Toolkit II at all - it isn't referenced on the boot screen, and typing tk2_ext at the command prompt produces an error, like it isn't there. Maybe the previous owner changed something to remove this... (Can't check the manual at the moment, as Dilwyn's site seems to be down)

If you have EEPROM programmer you can use any 64Kx8 ROM.
If not - I can send.
Tetroid, thanks for your help. I would like to get the 2.49 ROM from you as I don't have any equipment to do it. I can do PayPal, just PM me the details.
