Laptop Net_inst PCMCIA Woes

Hi everyone,
  I'm trying to install Debian woody using a Net_inst CD from early february. 
The CD works fine on my desktop, however it can't seem to detect my PCMCIA 
bus when I try to detect it on my Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop. This is very 
bad news, since I can't use my Linksys Cardbus NIC until I have PCMCIA 
working, of course. :-)
  I know both the system and the NIC are Linux compatible, and work well with 
any pcmcia-cs release newer than about February of 2001. Most recently, my 
system was running Mandrake Linux 8.1 without any problems.

  Any ideas on what parameters or such that I need to feed to the installer's 
PCMCIA setup to get the bus going?
