at the bottom of simple-cdd.conf:

KERNEL_PARAMS="$KERNEL_PARAMS hw-detect/start_pcmcia=false"

if the pcmcia stuff happens a little later in the process, you could
alternately put it in profiles/default.preseed:

d-i hw-detect/start_pcmcia boolean false

one or the other should work.

the default partitioning with simple-cdd assumes a simple preseeded
partition layout. so if you want manual partitioning, you probably want
to comment out the line in profiles/default.preseed:

d-i partman/choose_partition  select Finish partitioning and write changes to disk

good luck :)
