Angry Help! System screwed after attempting suspend


I tried a simple apm -s command which froze the system. Now every time I reboot the system gets stuck attempting to start pcmcia services at boot time.
I can get the system to boot by using interactive startup and not starting pcmcia...but then I obviously cannot connect to my network.

Config is :
Redhat 7.2
kernel 2.4.7-10
not sure what else might be needed here...

Thanks for any help.

Yeeha!
Never mind...
I figured out my problem. Apparently on some computers apm -s screws up the pcmcia module. To fix it I had to do an interactive boot skipping pcmcia.
Then stopping and starting the pcmcia cardmgr with the following lines solved the problem:

/etc/init.d/pcmcia stop
/etc/init.d/pcmcia start

Anyone know why this happened?
