[clug] Expresscard in Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

I borrowed a friends Expresscard TV Tuner just for a "quick" experiment to
see what Ubuntu linux thought of it.  Turns out nothing - nothing was
reported in /var/log at all.  A bit of searching tells me that the kernel
module pciehp is required for expresscards to work but my ubuntu 9.10
default kernel doesn't seem to have that module available.  A bit more
searching and it looks like the only way I'm gunna get that module is if I
build the kernel myself and for this quick experiement its not worth it.

Anybody else noticed this with expresscards or is my install an anomaly?
