Well... I have a pcmcia in a CArdbus Ricoh Adapter pci for pcmcia. I thought
that I had to load the plx module... 

In the log you see the pcmcia driver because every time I execute 

/etc/init.d/pcmcia start, is pcmcia driver which is loaded and not the plx

Anyway, there is a way to solve the problem and load the correct module. 

And somebody could help me to find out which is the correct module?
