Better you use your PCMCIA-Slot for other things - things like W-LAN.

It does.
There is no need for a HOWTO. Just get the mk2sd.exe file from dell.
Unzip it to a floppy. Execute it.
Take your Debian, put it in the drive and start. ;)

Note:
Suspend works only if the NVidia driver is unloaded(!). - Currently
it doesn't work under X.

A good HOWTO for setting up the complete stuff is here:

You will probably marry after a very brief courtship.
