If its not showing up in dmesg, it probably has nothing to do with your
kernel and has everything to do with some daemon that is configured to
run at boot time.

I'm guessing you've installed netatalk or some such, which could result
in you seeing messages regarding appletalk in your boot messages.
Netatalk is a daemon that is (roughly) to apple filesharing what Samba
is to windows filesharing.

The pcmcia messages probably have a similar source (pcmcia card

To check whether these packages are installed, type:

apt-cache policy pcmcia-cs netatalk

I've not used the new installer, so I cant help you here.
