the yenta_socket driver is not looking at the cardbus controller because
your BIOS is buggy reporting the e820 memory map and then 2.6.8 is not very
smart about it (2.6.14 will be much much smarter).

currently yenta_socket is at 3fe40000-3fe40fff. but this is <1GB.
and since you have 1GB of physical memory you have a problem...

you are already on the right way with the reserve= on the kernel command line.
you have:
change that to:

this should plug the hole in the memory map and stop the kernel from using
it for PCI address space...
