Description Bill Crawford 2002-03-23 04:19:56 EST
Description of Problem:
With Enigma this appeared to work.
If I configure the interface to use DHCP, and include "ONBOOT=yes", the driver
gets loaded and the interface created, but it never gets the address assigned,
and so doesn't work. This looks like a pcmcia is being started up after the
interface.  Also ntpd tries to start before pcmcia, and thus fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@marcus root]# rpm -q initscripts kernel-pcmcia-cs

Same here on a fresh install of skipjack. Here's my

[root@localhost network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-eth0 

This eth0 interface, which is a pcmcia device, does not come up on boot.
