received my T410 last week, played around, but noticed that the smart card reader is not working correctly.
In Device Manager, the driver is installed correctly as integrated smart card reader.
But when I insert a smart card, it asked to install driver and failed.

I'm having the same problem. T410 Running Windows 7 x64. The Smart Card Reader driver installed successfully but then I pop in my Smart Card and now the card needs a driver? Weird, but when I go through Citrix to authenticate using my SC, it actually works. But the driver popping up and failing each time I insert the SC is so annoying.
Lenovo??? Help? Or do I have find the actually manufacturer of the Smart Card???

This is a known problem and i have seen the same thing using Omnikey PCMCIA and USB smartcard readers. I would rather blame the provider of the smartcard and not Lenovo or the manufacturer of the smartcard reader.
You can read more about the smartcard minidrivers here:
There are also some workarounds to be found in that article. Take a look at the part that describe how to disable smartcard plug and play using group policy and the part that describe how to disable smartcard plug and play for a specific smartcard.
