Check the support for PCMCIA support in Linux kernel's .config file.
This can be found in the directory where Linux source code exists.

If the support is not present then you can recompile the kernel enabling
this support.
This can be done by 'make menuconfig' or 'make xconfig'.

After changing this you need to recompile the kernel.

Which part you don't understand? Let us improve it
by letting us know.
