I have built a kernel and modules images and have tried to install them both. I have to do a dpkp -i --force-overwrite in order to get them to install. The error is related to a duplicate of pcmcia_core modules.

It's not a duplicate of the modules.  Instead, there are two sets of
drivers, the drivers supplied by the 2.4 kernel and the drivers provided
by the pcmcia-cs source.  The kernel-image package now, incorrectly,
includes some symlinks from the /lib/modules/<k>/pcmcia directory to the
kernel modules located elsewhere in the /lib/modules/<k> directory tree.
Since these symlinks are located in the location where the standalone
drivers have always resided, a conflict occurs and "--force-overwrite"
is necessary.

See Bug#128662 for more information.

But I built my own pcmcia-modules package and kernel-image package from the 2.4.17 kernel-source and 3.1.36 pcmcia-source.
You mean that these are still building bad links?

I have tried using the --force-overwrite option when installating the pcmcia-modules package and it still does not work. I am able to get past the problem with the pcmcia-core problem. But the specific drivers I am using (orinoco, orinoco_cs) are still failing to modprobe successfully.

Now what I am seeing is a versioning problem between these drivers in the two pacages.
