Rather than using the 2.4 kernel PCMCIA drivers, try using the separate
PCMCIA bundle from <http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net>. I was never able
to get my PC cards working on my laptop with the 2.4.x kernel until I
downloaded and used the separate bundle. Just download them, recompile
your kernel with _no_ PCMCIA support built in. Then, once you've
installed the kernel and its modules (be sure to delete the
/lib/modules/2.4.?? directory as well) build and install the PCMCIA
package. You should be fine on your next reboot. It worked for me. =)
