Description of problem:
When I boot my laptop (IBM Thinkpad iSeries 1161), none of my PCMCIA cards are
recognized.  In order to get them to work, I have to do a "services pcmcia stop"
"services network stop" physically remove the card, "services pcmcia start"
insert the card, "services network start."  Some times, I have to do this a
number of times before my cards actually "come online"!  cardmgr does not report
that any cards are inserted even when the cards are working properly!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Laptop w/ PCMCIA card inserted (cards will not be recognized)
2.Remove cards, issue stop services commands.
3.Insert cards, re-start services (pcmcia and network)

Actual Results:  If I'm lucky, my network PCMCIA cards will be usable.

Expected Results:  I expected to just have my PCMCIA cards available on boot!

Additional info:

The 2 PCMCIA cards I'm attempting to use are (1) a 3Com 3ccfe575ct (2) IBM
10/100 Etherjet (Xircom re-brand).
