I don't have access to my laptop now, but I remember to have read
(probably in README of pcmcia-source package) that If you want things to
Just Work, the separate package is the way to go. 2.4.x kernel doesn't
support a lot of cards that are supported by pcmcia-sources. I also had
trouble with the 2.4.x kernel driver for my pcmcia card which also works
fine with the pcmcia-source package
I don't think it's worth the trouble to try and get it to work with
2.4.x drivers if they work the other way anyhow.

I did not vote for the Austrian government
