You still need cardmgr from pcmcia-cs.  When compiling pcmcia-cs, only the 
utilities will be compiled, but not the drivers.  That's OK.

The driver is in the Linux kernel.  You need to enable CardBus support in 
the kernel configuration to enable compiling the driver.  If you compile 
PCMCIA support as a module, the module will be called yenta_socket. 
You'll also need the "ds" module loaded before you run cardmgr.

If you have any problems with compiling user-space utilities in pcmcia-cs 
try the latest beta version from http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/ftp/NEW/ 
If the problem persist please describe it in details.  Error messages from 
Configure (or "make config") can be ignored if the script finishes
