ConnectPlus: simultaneous use of memory and wi-fi?

I have a Zaurus SL-5600 handheld which is currently running kernel 2.6.16. If
this scenario is possible under 2.4 I'd like to revert to 2.4.18. I am trying
to configure a SanDisk ConnectPlus card to use the wi-fi part (in monitor
mode with Kismet) and the memory part (to store logs) at the same time. I
have been unable so far to get this to even work on my x86 laptop running
2.6.16. If I insert the card, I can get either hostap_cs to work or ide_cs to
work, but not both. I think which works depends on which loads first. If I
just insert the card without inserting one of those modules first, hostap_cs
loads and this appears in the kernel log:
0.1: GetNextTuple: No more items
If I eject the card via 'pccardctl eject' and then re-insert it
with 'pccardctl insert', hostap_cs again initializes but the message is
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.1
0.1: ParseTuple: Bad CIS tuple
Under /sys/bus/pcmcia, I can see each function of the card as 0.0 and 0.1, and
they are bound to the respective drivers, but only hostap_cs has registered
it's netdevices and ide_cs has no block device.
All of the above was on my Thinkpad running Debian and 2.6.16, not on the Z.
Is this even possible with the current Linux kernel? If it is, is it possible
under Linux 2.4? The Zaurus has some minor issues (hardware suspend key
doesn't trigger suspend, sound isn't working, etc.) with the 2.6 test images
right now so I'd like to go back to the tried-and-true 2.4.18 image if at all
