Question How to change module loading sequence?

I'm really quite new to all this. Just installed Fedora Core 2 on an IBM thinkpad and I'm using it with a PCMCIA network card. Everything works fine, except when I shut the machine off and turn it on again. When that happens, an error message comes up telling me that eth0 doesn't exist. But I've found out that it happens because Fedora tries to load the network module followed by the PCMCIA module. So, what I need to do is change the load sequence, right? But how do I do that? I've also found that the boot modules are in the /etc/rc.d folder. But what do I do with the files? Besides, there are like multiple S24pcmcia, K96pcmcia is various folders in there. Do I remane the files to follow the number sequence? What does "S" and "K" mean? Could really do with some help.

I have wondered the same thing about changing the order. The only help I can give is that "s" is for start and "k" is for kill (stop). As you go from one init level to another, some things need to be shut down that might have been running from the level running before, so the "k" entries are in there for that.
