Default How is PCMCIA card support in CentOs5?

Hi all!

I have an old PCMCIA card and I would like to use in a newly installed centos5.6. I want to use, but I do not know how. ifconfig-a does not return the card details ... I can see the pci devices both the controller and the PCMCIA card as well. I read, I have to load the kernel module yenta to use the pcimcia card, but I couldn't. The /sbin/modprobe -l | grep "yenta" does not return anything, and do not have either of these modules in libary (find /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/ | grep yenta)
Please any help on how I can move forward welcome, or where should I start to search or indeed whether the card can support?

How to config PCMCIA Card at CentOS5 now?

Thanks Victor
