yenta_socket is the name of the kernel-level PCMCIA driver. If you do not
use the built-in kernel PCMCIA drivers, but instead use the full stand-alone
PCMCIA-CS package, there is no yenta-socket; you must specifiy i82365.

Or I did, at least, since I use the stand-alone PCMCIA-CS drivers with my
wireless LinkSys driver, and had to make that change, since compiling the
PCMCIA-CS package produced no yenta_socket driver.
