System freezes after starting PCMCIA

I got a Lifebook C4155 and today my D-Link660-ethernet-card
arrived. I am using a self-built 2.2.17 on a potato system. I compiled
the pcmcia-modules from source.

Ok, if I start pcmcia with "/etc/init.d/pcmcia start" while the card is
inserted the system totally freezes - sysrq doesn't work. I can hear a
short beep and that's it. Removing the card doesn't help.

I am totally new to the PCMCIA-system so I would appreciate it, if you
could point me the right direction. Is it possible to insert and eject
the card at any time? Should it be inserted prior to booting?
Do I have to load anyting else, before I can use the card? 
BTW: http://mobilix.org says this card is supported, that's why I
bought it. And I have read postings from people, saying this card
works very well. 
So what am I doing wrong?
