Inspect your /etc/init.d/pcmcia script.  It may be trying to 'insmod'
modules instead of 'modprobe'ing them, with the result being that
dependent modules are not loaded correctly.  I had a similar problem,
and fixed it by modifying the script to 'modprobe' the pcmcia modules.

Another is to make sure that /etc/default/pcmcia has PCIC="yenta_socket" rather than PCIC="i82365" since the 2.4 kernels don't have that module.
