pcmcia messed up: cardmgr "no sockets found"

I have a Dell Latitude C400 and the PCMCIA used to work, now it doesn't. I'm not sure what I did, but I was trying to get this to work. It almost did, now it doesn't. Seems somehow my PCMCIA got all messed up. Trying to load a PCMCIA module like 8211.o gives you "8211.o: init_module: No such device" and I tracked that down to my PCMIA not showing up. In lspci it's there, and in lsmod pcmcia_core is loaded. Checking the RH9 services I noticed that PCMCIA wasn't started. I tried starting it, it wouldn't start. I checked /var/log/messages and turned up with this:
Dec 7 20:06:01 localhost cardmgr[2091]: starting, version is 3.1.31
Dec 7 20:06:01 localhost cardmgr[2091]: open_sock(socket 0) failed: Device or resource busy
Dec 7 20:06:01 localhost cardmgr[2091]: no sockets found!
Dec 7 20:06:01 localhost cardmgr[2091]: exiting
What does it mean? How do I go about fixing it? Any comments/help is greatly apreciated. Thanks in advance...
