Make sure that the appropriate modules are loaded, these are (for pci in
most cases):

yenta_socket, ds

Check dmesg if a new pcmcia-hardware was found. If your test-box is
really old (PCI 2.0/2.1 capable only) this might be a problem related to
the used chipset/bios not being capable of PCI 2.2 in which first the
Cardbus-Bridge was fully specified. lspci should at least show up the
cardbus-bridge.

If you got further or more specific questions have a look at
pcmcia.sf.net and the PCMCIA-Howto.
