Did you use the kernel's own PCMCIA support or get Card Services
(pcmcia-cs)?  It's been my experience that cs is much more robust than 
yenta.  However, you'll have to compile PCMCIA-CS against the kernel 
source to create modules appropriate to the new kernel.

I can definitely understand the allure of rolling your own kernel -
that's one of Linux's great strengths.  But I'll also have to repeat 
Jon's question - why the 2.4 series?
