You are using pcmciautils semi-succesfully on a  2.6.12-2  kernel?
I thought it wouldn't work until 2.6.13 and so you would have to use 
I am trying to figure out what I should be using for a 2.6.12-5 kernel. 
  Maybe I'll try the pcmciautils and see what happens.  It's smaller and 
so maybe would be easier to implement in my lfslivecd boot setup.
