yes I have a cardbus device (USR805410 pcmcia card) 
but in this case driverloader debian package should create a symbolic
link under /etc/rcNN.d/ with a sequence number greater than 20, that is
the sequence number for pcmcia-cs on debian.
Driverloader debian package set 14 as sequence number for driverloader
init script.
Probably does driverloader 1.77 set a sequence number greater than 20
while 2.04 does not?
