The drivers are not finding your PCMCIA bridge.  What kind of laptop
is this?  How old?

If it is a particularly old laptop (five years or older, probably 486
based), you might have a Databook TCIC bridge, in which case, you
could try loading the "tcic.o" module instead of "i82365.o".  Another
possibility would be that you've got a Cirrus PD6722 bridge, which can
be powered down at boot time: in this case, you would need to use a
startup option of PCIC_OPTS="wakeup=1" as discussed in the

A third possibility: some systems have a BIOS setup option to disable
PCMCIA.  And a fourth possibility is that you're using a desktop
system with a PCMCIA adapter on a Plug and Play card, and need to use
the isapnp tools to activate it before loading the PCMCIA drivers.
