Now that is funny because I had the same problem, and I notice that it
is in the 'base' section of the ftp site of  bo/frozen/1.3, however it

not providing the dependency fufillment? a bug I suppose.

so I used dpkg --force-dependency pcmcia-modules-xxxxx.deb;
now it is installed anyway.  I guess you didn't do this because....
