Presario 1200-no kernel pcmcia drivers loaded??


I was able to successfully install RH9 on this laptop with the only issue is the sound...or so I thought. I looked thru the sys log and found:

Linux Kernel card services
no driver loaded

So because of this my pcmcia nic and modem wont work. The cardmgr starts up but gave me a "release veriosn doesnt match" error. But the cardmgr process still runs...or it doesnt get killed by the system.

Surely someone else has run into this...I know finegan is getting frusterated also....

Ok I was running into this problem but it seems to be resolved by a complete reload of RH. So now my "Linux Kernel card services" starts up just like it should. Now cardmgr still gives me a nasty "Card service release doesnt match"...after a FRESH INSTALL, WTF?!? Crazy man, just crazy. Can anyone help me? The damn sockt just will not recognize ANY card inserted...but pcmcia starts normally.

Well, since no one seems to have any ideas, I loaded up Mandrake 9.1...but still doesnt recognize when cards are inserted, ejected...and STILL doesnt show any errors in the sys log other than the Card Services release doesnt match... This is so damn frustrating.
