Hello Juan,

If you are running the default kernel, just by inserting the card you
should see something happening a few beeps and stuff.

If none of this happens is probably because the pcmcia modules are not
being loaded either at boot or at card insertion, of course this is
what you need to achieve.
I would recommend reading the PCMCIA-Howto it ussualy resides in
/usr/share/HOWTO. Or you can just find it with google.

If after reading it you are even more confused than before don't
panic, it is normal. Just post your new doubts to the list and someone
will help you. Of course when you post you should try to be as
specific as possible.
