Until now I tried only modprobe the airo_cs and yenta_socket
modules per hand. Is there maybe a pcmcia_cs package for ydl
2.1 or must I install it from the official pcmcia_cs source
tarball ? Hmm, in the SUPPORTED.CARDS file from the pcmcia_cs
tarball I can read the line "[airo_cs driver] [x86]", hope
this is not true anymore.

Ok, I will try the latest kernel with the pcmcia_cs tools and
will see what happens..

Thanks Derrik and Ben !
