Do you have an updated modutils package? AFAIK the one in potato is too
old, and you'll have to get the one from woody. You'll should get
version 2.4 (same version number as the kernel).
Did you install the modules? If you're building the package manually,
don't forget to "make modules_install". And you should look into using
the kernel-package tools to make your kernel into a Debian package, so
you won't have to worry about things like that.
If your PCMCIA cards are supported by the kernel, you can try using the
kernel's PCMCIA stuff instead of pcmcia-cs. NOTE: if you use the
kernel's PCMCIA stuff, DON'T use pcmcia-cs modules. You'll still need
the utilities from that package (the pcmcia-cs binary package), but you
won't need pcmcia-source.

No idea. My only guess would be to make sure MTRR support is compiled
into your kernel, like Sebastian suggested.
