You are running pcmcia-cs, and not just loading the Card Services driver
modules outright, correct? Because that will not work - you have to run
the pcmcia-cs agent daemon (cardmgr) to handle insertion and removal
events, to configure device drivers, etc. If you are, make sure you follow
Ben's advice about updating your kernel - he recently re-fixed a PCMCIA
resource management bug in the kernel tree.
