[kernel 2.6.5] hotplug/udev and compact flash


I trying to use a compact flash card with a pcmcia SanDisk Ultra.

My hardware is rightly detected but I don't have any new entry in /dev.

dev # cardctl status
Socket 0:
  3.3V 16-bit PC Card
  function 0: [ready]
Socket 1:
  no card
Here is my kernel 2.6.5 config for pcmcia:
Bus option (PCI, PCMCIA, EISA, MCA, ISA) >
     PCMCIA/CardBus support [y]
     CardBus yenta-compatible bridge support [y]
Device Drivers > ATA/ATAPIMFM/RLL support >
      PCMCIA IDE support [y]
I really don't understand why no new entry is created in /dev!

Many thanks for your help
