Thanx for the answer, it's good to know there are people willing to help
out there ...
I compiled the kernel and the pcmcia-modules and it works fine.
I've just added FreeSWAN (IPSec) ... seems to work, too.
Tomorrow I'll go to my university (where we have an IPSec wireless
network) and try it out.

This is what I've done:
installed kernel-sources-2.2.19, kernel-package and pcmcia-source
unpacked the source files

then (in the kernel source dir):

  make-kpkg clean
  make xconfig
  make-kpkg --revision rakah.1 kernel_image
   (rakah is my notebook's name)
  make-kpkg --revision rakah.1 modules_image

After that, there are two deb-files:

These images had to be installed.
It took me only twenty minutes (well, most of the time I stared
at the screen while the CPU was working).
kernel-package rocks! I can really recommend it ;-)
