I don't know why these kernels work differently for you, but I suggest
that you check file /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia and make sure that you have
PCIC=yenta_socket there.  Note the underscore.  Linux 2.6 doesn't
distinguish between underscores and dashes, but Linux 2.4 does.

Next step is to run "/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start" without the module and
figure out why it's not loaded.  "set -x" is your friend.
