I couldn't find any compiled modules in potato, so I tried to get it
working on my own. I have a UDB Multia with two on-board pcmcia slots and
-since three days ago- a digital camera with pcmcia cards :-)

Compiling the pcmcia-cs_3.0.7.orig.tar.gz (with pcmcia-cs_3.0.7-3.diff.gz)
was rather nasty, but in the end it had the at least modules I wanted and
I could mount the card. (kernel is 2.2.1)

Auto-unmounting does not work right, it seems that it does not free the
devices again, after several card-in-out-cycles, I had it listening on
/dev/hde1 (after /dev/hda1 and /dev/hdc1). It works fine, if you unmount
it yourself. 

It would be nice, if there was some kind of pcmcia-support in slink,
althought I see that it is quite difficult to get it stable. (There are
good chances running into a kernel panic when unplugging mounted stuff...)
