Changing "boot" order of PCMCIA service

Is it possible to change the order at which services are started at boot-up? My problem is that the system (Fedora Core 2) tries to start my wireless card before the pcmcia service starts, and therefor, basically my wireless network card won't work unless I deactivate it and then reactivate it and reboot.

I need to change my system so that pcmcia starts before the system goes looking for my wireless card.

Thanks for any help anyone can give....

pcmcia startup order change

Navigate to /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/

find "Sxxpcmcia" where "xx" is a 2 digit number, rename Sxxpcmcia to an unused number before the "Sxx" number of "Sxxnetwork". for example, I changed the name of mine from "S15pcmcia" to "S07pcmcia" because i had "S10network"

reboot, and you should be all set.
