nokia d211 gprs pcmcia card.

Ive installed Nokia d211 with the drivers that are on the nokia site . Ive compiled the drivers and installed them into my kernel 2.4.18 (slackware 8.1) gcc ver 2.95.3. Now i have it recognized as i do the command
 "cardctl ident" and it responds product info: "Nokia", "D211" manfid: 0x0124, 0x1120 function: 6 (network).
But when i try to use it with the command nokia_ctl enable_gsm for example i get the error "Timeout in IPC message sending msgrcv: Interrupted system call".

im not too sure what the problem could be??

this is what i see in the /vat/log/messages :
module nokia_cs loaded with warnings
card inserted initialising
config.... (config lines are here not typing them out)
executing: './nokia_cs start eth0
action start
./nokia_cs: command not found
any ideas would be much apreciated!!, i have searched the web, and have notice a few people have come accross this problem, but havent found any fixes.

./nokia whatever means that it is trying to load the drivers out of the directory it is in. go to the directory where the nokia rpogram resides resides and run the command. should work now. let me know if not. if so,maybe we can change nokia startup script to load from that directory. and i may be wrong. sorry if so.
