How to install a PCI 2 Pcmcia card on Slack9?

Hello I was wondering if anyone has done this and if so how do you install it. I am getting a pci card with two pcmcia slots on it that I would like to install some toshiba portable harddrives in it. I have two 5gb drives that I would like to us for some sort of storage so that is the whole idea.

I have slackware 9 running on my pc that I plan on installing this card on. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Well I put in the card and it seen it with no problems. Slackware also seen the hard drive as a toshiba which I thought was cool. But now how do I mount the hard drive? I have been going through the man pages and I am not sure if I am reading it right? But I keep seeing this cardmgr?
