You need to edit /etc/default/pcmcia, and change the PCIC= line from i82365 to yenta_socket. Also, at least on my Pismo, do_scan=0 needs to be added to the PCIC_OPTS= line.

My /etc/default/pcmcia file looks like this:

# Defaults for pcmcia (sourced by /etc/init.d/pcmcia)

Also, on my Pismo, I had to comment out all lines in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, and add the following two lines:

include port 0x100-0x1ff
include memory 0x80000000-0x80ffffff

and PCMCIA works perfectly with it.
