'kernel-pcmcia' wasn't available as an option so I selected 'initscripts' thinking that made the most sense for this problem.
I did a custom expert install. Don't know if this matters, but I'm guessing not....
S45pcmcia as the default causes a couple problems with PCMCIA NICs. 1. When a pcmcia NIC device is being configured via DHCP it fails.
The S10network script cannot configure the device if it hasn't started yet. So pcmcia should start before network. 2. S45pcmcia starts after
S17ypbind causing ypbind to fail to locate the NIS server since there is no network connectivity.
May be other problems, but these are what I've noticed...
