Description of problem:
when booting an error caught my eye  saying it couldnt find my network adapter..  
looking a little closer a couple of boots  I noticed  the possible problem...
it seems to start networking before the PCMCIA  services (or whatever u call it)  
so  when trying to start networking it cant find my network adapter yet..
its easy to fix by starting the network adapter when its done booting  but it is
an kind of annoying bug in my opinion 
so if anyone has the time  and is willing to fix it  please do so before the
next release (7.3 had the same problem just as many other new linux
distributions.. they all seem to have this problem)

I hope this helps fix the problem and helps making linux even better :)

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  networking didnt work

Expected Results:  it should have worked :P

There are two phases to network startup - the first will initialize all
embedded/PCI/ISA/etc adapters.  The second will initialize all USB/PCMCIA/etc
