pcmcia at startup

I've got a orinoco 8420 wireless card that I compiled drivers for. To make a long story short, my pcmcia wont start at boot. So I have to manually do

modprobe pcmcia_core
modprobe ds
modprobe yenta_socket
service pcmcia start

in order to get my wireless card to work. I'm running RH9 and my question is, how do I get PCMCIA working at boot again?
