Ok. It's been a while since I've had any PCMCIA devices, so I can't be
too much help here I'm afraid. But I can at least give you some
ideas.

For starters, what you might want to look into is modifying
/etc/modules to have your generic PCMCIA and network card modules
loaded at boot.

Alternately, you could change the boot order for PCMCIA support so
that it gets loaded BEFORE the network devices are configured. (This
would be done by changing the rc symlinks.)

You could try installing hotplug and see if it will handle your PCMCIA
devices as well since I know that hotplug gets called before the
network interfaces get configured.

Finally, you can check if there's a way to have the PCMCIA support
automatically configure your network interface for you. Some sort of
scripts that automatically get run when PCMCIA detects a device
perhaps? (This sounds more like a hotplug thing, but I'm not sure just
where the hotplug/PCMCIA distinction lies.)

Good luck. :)
