I am experiencing something like this.  I did find a very odd workaround:
delete /lib/modules/KERNELVERSION/pcmcia.
For some reason, this makes modprobe look in

I figured this out by stracing the first modprobe of /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia
start.  Ugh.

Note: I didn't change any options.  I used the canned 686 config.

I wonder *why* this is necessary.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
