PCMCIA reload

am attempting to install a 3com wireless pci card. Found an article that helped me install but got stuck on a particular step. It said
"7. Rerun the /etc/rc.d/pcmcia reload "
Would anybody know what this is or how to do it?
Thanks for any help,

The advice you read needs a bit of tweaking depending on what distro you run. For example, if you're on a Redhat box, the pcmcia script would be ran as:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart

If you're on a debian box:

/etc/rc.d/pcmcia restart

Either way, you should be passing 'restart' to the script instead of 'reload'. Usually, you can see what options are available to a give script by just calling it with no parameters.
