I just read David Hind's PCMCIA-HOWTO again - and it states that PCIC may
either bei "tcic", "i82365" or "yenta-socket".
So for 2.4. the setting of "yenta" should be invalid, and for both 2.4. and
2.6. "yenta-socket" should work. Nonetheless, the distro of your choice
might have meddled with the original pcmcia-cs distribution, it might be
that this is the reason why things don't work as expected.
