Are you saying it was added to the CD driver floppy? That would be right.
Missed it by a week. :)

Yes - I have to boot from floppies. The Portege 3480 does support booting
from CD, but I think last time I tried to boot Debian from CD it had
problems with the image format. (I understand it can only boot into a 1.4MB
image?) To be honest, I didn't try again with the sarge/testing CD.

But the pcmcia modules are on the Net driver floppy. So I load them from
there. The single missing module was ide-cs.o
