Unhappy PCMCIA - No sockets error

When I boot up Linux I get the message:

PCICMA (DS) Error - No Sockets Found

Does any one known what this means and how to fix it?

Have you tried loading a PCMCIA socket driver, like i82365 or yenta socket?
As root, try this: /sbin/modprobe yenta_socket or /sbin/modprobe i82365

If either one works, add it to your list of modules that should be loaded on boot.
