2) you need to recompile pcmcia whenever you either
a) enable or disable apm
b) change kernel versions
c) realize a pcmcia module needs a kernel module you left out
this happens for pcmcia cdroms, scsi devices, etc
you did it right, the problem is dpkg is a little goofy about how it handles
the depends. Easiest solution is to remove the pcmcia-modules package, install
the kernel, then install the new pcmcia modules package.
