Try to make it work manually according to PCMCIA-HOWTO, then you will find
whether it works or not.

What you get when running following commands in konsole?

chelcicky:matej$ which startx
chelcicky:matej$ dpkg -S $(which startx)
xbase-clients: /usr/X11R6/bin/startx
chelcicky:matej$ apt-cache policy xbase-clients

(do the same with /etc/init.d/kdm -- that's what starts KDE).

Good luck!
