If it's a 16-bit card, check you've got a 
pcmcia* at cardslot*
in your kernel config - I 'optimised' mine out and made several head-shaped
dents in the wall before realising my mistake... I realise I'm probably teaching granny
to suck eggs here...

(I'm *still* trying to coax my chung fung cube into booting with a wavelan in a cardbus
slot, although I'm hoping my hard reboots have been down to cpuflags generating
broken kernels for via C3 chips - am rebuidling one in the other screen now...)
