  Support for CardBus will be in 1.5.  I recommend installing 1.5ALPHA2
for now and upgrade to 1.5BETA and 1.5 when they are available (which
should not be too long now).  If you want to use a release, 1.4.2 would be
your best bet.  If you use pre-1.5, you will see exactly what you
described: the CardBus controller is not configured but a PCMCIA
controller is.  You should be able to use all supported PCMCIA devices,
just not CardBus cards.
