spending a little time going over your kernel config file and/or
comparing what changed between your 2.2.x and 2.4.x kernel config file
will show you what you are missing.  going over the xircom website will
also help.

this is what you're missing: # CONFIG_PCMCIA_XIRC2PS is not set

although i could be wrong as it's been years since i've used pccards.
