orinoco wifi in mandrake 10


I am having trouble with my orinoco card. (pcmcia btw)
sometimes it will be detected when booting and i configure it and its fine. but when I reboot its the same crapshoot as to whether it will work or not.
when I do a lsmod it looks fine.
the light just doesn't come on and its not assigned to eth2 like when it's detected during boot.
what's going on here?
i'm a noob so go easy on me
