Question PCMCIA problem in YellowDog Linux 3.0 on Lombard


I just installed YDL 3.0 on a PowerBook G3 Lombard - I chose the Workstation installation and did not modify any package selections. So far everything seems to work except for PCMCIA. Checking the boot.log there is the following entry:

Starting pcmcia: succeeded
However, lsmod does not show any pcmcia modules and the command "cardctl ident" returns the following:

no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices
Also, as per advice I read somewhere on this issue, I made the following changes in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts

#Original setting:
#include memory 0x80000000-0x80ffffff
#include port 0x100-0x1ff

#New settings:
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x1000-0x17ff
include memory 0x80000000-0x80ffffff
That did not help either. What am I missing? I would have thought that all necessary modules would've been installed, is that not the case? Do I need to compile a kernel with different options?
