Could you word wrap your messages?  Your original message went out to
hundreds of columns.  Makes it very hard to read.  Of course I word
wrapped it for my reply.

Instead of using 'insmod' try using 'modprobe'.  The first (insmod)
will do exactly what you tell it and if there are unresolved symbols
will fail.  The second (modprobe) will try to load additional modules
as required to satisfy the dependencies.

  modprobe pcmcia_core
  modprobe 3c575_cb
