The 2.4 kernels have introduced their own PCMCIA drivers.  Now there are
two sets of drivers, the 2.4 kernel drivers, and the standalone drivers
(from the pcmcia-cs source).  I am currently in the process of trying to
get one pcmcia-cs package to support both sets.

Personally, I still recommend the standalone drivers for now, since they
are more mature.  New development is almost completely in the 2.4 kernel
drivers, however, so they are the way of the future.
