I didn't think that even the new iBook (aka iceBook) had a PC Card slot?
Besides, errors like those are common from those modules, if they don't
see what they expect. I was under the impression that the PC Card

controller driver definitely won't work in that case...

Do 'ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 /etc/X11/X'. Then try again.
