Whitch module to load Belkin Cardbus LAN (TP)

I want to install gentoo on my IBM Thinkpad T21. I have gentoo on my other computer and like that distribution. My problem is that I dont know which module to load for my network. Its a Cardbus (PCMCIA) Belkin F5D5010. I guess I must load a PCMCIA module or something first.

I have tried Knoppix and that works fine. I also have tested Slackware and the autodetect works fine even there.

Where can I see which modules that are loaded in Knoppix or Slackware.

It would be nice to at least get a hint

Regards Eken

Offhand I don't know what part of the kernel you compile in usb cardbus support, but I bet genkernel missed it, or hotplugging is setup not to force load it, or hotplugging is messed up.
