card type command Cisco 2801

I'm setting up a new Cisco 2801 router for a T1 with a VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 card.  I'm getting this message:

card type command needed for slot/vwic-slot 0/3

This is what I've tried so far:

conf t
card type t1 0 3

No error after the above.  When I type exit, and then do a sho config, I'm still seeing that message.

Router(config)#controller t1 0/3/0
Router(config-controller)#framing esf
Router(config-controller)#linecode b8zs
Router(config-controller)#channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

No errors here.  I'm not seeing a serial interface in the config though, and still getting that card type error.  

Who is Participating?

Do you have the correct version of IOS installed?, which version do you have? You need at least

Why are you using "controller t1 0/3/0" ? try "controller t1 0/3"

harbor235 is on to something  . . . make sure your IOS supports that card.

Open a ticket with Cisco.

Good luck,

Arg, I must have done something out of order.  I just tried again, and it worked fine.   (IOS = 12.4).  Not sure what I did differently, but thanks to you both for responding.
