pcmcia support for Gentoo

Hey. I'm running Gentoo with the 2.6.15 kernel. I'm having trouble getting my pcmcia to work. I made sure to include support for it in my kernel, along with all the drivers that I'd need for my aironet card, but when I boot, gentoo tells me that it failed to start my pcmcia cardbus or something of that nature. Anyways, I was wondering if I missed a step somewhere, or if I need to emerge something else onto my system. I'm using a Dell Latitude C600 laptop.
