pcmcia, Mandrake, modules, and a smoking gun

For all that is holy and good, what is going on. I'm a Gentoo user. I do not know much about how Mandrake handles itself, but I feel competent enough to install a Mandrake 10.0 system on a laptop. Everything went without a hitch! All updated and working. I reboot it and continue using it. Swapping my wireless card back and forth with my pcmcia/cdrom drive. No problem. I finally reboot just to make sure all it absolutely well, and the wireless card won't work. It won't light up. The system isn't seeing it. No dmesg. pcmcia is a running service, but it's not loading yenta_socket or i82092. Which after I load those modules, I must eject the card, restart the pcmcia service, and insert the card to get a normal response. At which point the card getting a DHCP address, but still refuses to ping anything at all. That very last part I don't care much about right now, I just want to know how to fix the PCMCIA service! What in the blood, no good, i didn't change a blasted thing, SOAB, it shouldn't be this hard, heck happened!?!?!?!?!??!?!?! This is driving me insane b/c I can't back track, b/c I didn't do anything! Adding the needed modules to /etc/modules.conf or where ever they are supposed to go proved useless also. help?
