2.4.18-686 kernel, but no PCMCIA

When I boot my Dell laptop with the 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel, my PCMCIA
card is recognized properly and I can access our local Ethernet.

When using 2.4.18-686, however, I get the following error message
during booting and the "eth0" device is "unknown":

  /lib/modules/2.4.18-686/pcmcia/i82365.o:  unresolved symbol \

The value of "PCIC" in /etc/default/pcmcia is "i82365".  The board is
a Xircom.  

When booting into the '686' kernel, the board doesn't appear to be
recognized.  This is what I see in "/var/log/messages:

        Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
           options:  [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
      ds:  no socket drivers loaded!

Does anyone know how to get the card functional with 2.4.18-686?
Maybe I'm missing a module and/or configuration option?
