Will look at your suggestions. I found a more recent version
of the hotplug/pcmcia-HOWTO than the one on the TLDP pages -
it's on ibiblio and it talks about getting cardbus working.

Don't have the laptop with me right now. I've got whatever
comes with the latest pcmcia set. The problem isn't the
driver or matching a driver to the card, it's that the card
isn't even noticed on insertion (should get one beep, don't
get anything and nothing in logs).
I assumed then that I don't have a functioning PCI-cardbus
layer. I thought it was possible that I didn't have any
hardware to do this, since it's a 6yr old laptop and it
might predate cardbus, but lspci shows a pci-cardbus bridge,
which presumably talks to the pcmcia pins. I will now have
to figure out if I have a driver for the chip.

err, sorry, what do you mean here?
