When booting RedHat 6.1 on a laptop with a pcmcia card, then the pcmcia
service (S45pcmcia) is started
too late , so that the network (S10network) cannot establish correctly the
network via the pcmcia card. When renaming S45pcmcia to S09pcmia, so that
pcmcia is initialized before the network start, then the notebook is
correctly conneted to the network.
The PCMCIA script should not have any ordering requirements vs. the network
startup script (otherwise, hot insertion could not work). So whatever the
problem is, changing the order of the boot scripts is the wrong fix.
pcmcia does come up later on during the bootup sequence. There is really no
right answer when pcmcia should be initialized...
