I did what pcmcia-cs package instructs me to do:
 -disable pcmcia support in kernel
 -enable wlan
 -disable wlan drivers under network devices

I recompilled & installed the kernel & reinstalled pcmcia-cs package.

Now when I start pcmcia (/etc/init.d/pcmcia start) I get:
/lib/modules/2.4.19-gentoo-r10/pcmcia/ds.o: init_module: Operation not
permitted. Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module
parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ.

And then:
/lib/modules/2.4.19-gentoo-r10/pcmcia/ds.o: insmod ds failed

dmesg reports:
Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.2.1
 kernel build: 2.4.19-gentoo-r10 #4 Mon Jan 13 ...
 options: [pci] [cardbus] [apm]
ds: no socket drivers loaded!

What am I doing wrong?

On my kernel config file, CONFIG_PCMCIA is not set, CONFIG_HOTPLUG is set,
and on Wireless Lan block of definitions only CONFIG_NET_RADIO and

Thanks in advance,
