Firewire via PCMCIA at SuSE 10.1

Hi all,
currently I struggle around with my installation:
I try to use a PCMCIA Firewire card (1394 NEC) for my IBM T40 laptop.

My basic idea was, that Linux will automatically detect the card or the digicam connected to the card and show it under /media (like done with USB-sticks).
But this it not the case, simply nothing happens.
Is there something to do in addition to bring the firewire connection to life?

If a submit the command "pccardctl status" I get the response:
"Socket 0: 3.3V 32-bit PC Card"

And in the configuration under "Yast -> System -> PCI Device Drivers" I see in the list "NEC IEEE 1394 Host Controller (0000:03:00.0)"

What do I need to do???

Thanks a lot
