Listed PCMCIA Multifunction card not working

Hi everyone,

** Problem resolved today. I re-installed Sarge with my Multifunction card inserted, and it detected it by itself. Don't know what I was doing wrong, but now it's ok. Thanks anyway.

I am pretty new to Linux and I have a problem with a pcmcia card that is listed in the /etc/pcmcia/config file under "Multifunction cards" section. The entry is:
card "Megahertz EM1144T Ethernet/Modem"
version "MEGAHERTZ", "EM1144T", "PCMCIA MODEM"
bind "smc91c92_cs", "serial_cs"
I tried #lspci but nothing concerning my card came up.

My Kernel is 2.4.27-2-386 (Debian Sarge)

I tried #/sbin cardctl ident as proposed on the sticky post, and it answered me "no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices"

#lsmod : brings me a list. only pcmcia is pcmcia_core 38020 0

#modprobe yenta_socket (as seen on many posts around the web) gives me init_module: No such device

#insmod yenta_socket : gives me the same answer as modprobe

I know this is an old and discontinued card, but the fact is that the laptop I am working on is old too (a Toshiba Satellite Pro 460cdt). It was given to me when I did my networking internship, along with the card. I don't want to spend lots of money on this.

I've looked around, Google and stuff and tried everything listed... but since I am a newbie with Linux, I don't even know how to save a copy of dmesg or anything...

It is pretty discouraging... but I intend to learn.

Can anyone help sorting this out? Thank you!
