You're lying to the kernel. By using the i82365 module you're telling
the kernel your laptop has a PCMCIA bridge, while it actually has a
CardBus bridge. Your kernel config should look like this:

# PCMCIA/CardBus support
# CONFIG_I82092 is not set
# CONFIG_I82365 is not set
# CONFIG_TCIC is not set

If you compile cardbus as a module it will be called "yenta", though
you'd better compile it directly into the kernel so the kernel can
resolve all PCI routings at boot time.

Adrian Bunk's linux-2.4 packages work pretty well when you're using
stable, see http://people.debian.org/~bunk/ . You could also consider
upgrading to testing.
