You may be able to provided you use the exact same kernel version as the
original.
The packages your looking for are pcmcia-cs,
pcmcia-modules-"kernel-version".

Select the option under loadable module support in the kernel
configuration "Set version information on all symbols for modules" to be
on the safe side.

Personally I like to compile pcmcia-cs myself, its not difficult just
execute these three commands from the pcmcia-source root directory;
$ make config (then usually hit enter to select defaults)
$ make all
$ make install
