Xircom xe2000 not activating in rh9 or fedora core 1

I have been trying to get my Xircom xe2000 pcmcia network card working in Fedora Core and originally in RH9 without any luck.
During startup when probing the network adapter I get the error “device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization “ or something to that effect. In Fedora when running /sbin/modprobe xirc2ps_cs I don’t get any response, I assume this mean there are no errors. In the interrupt table (cat /proc/interrupts) the device is listed under IRQ 3 therefore I know the computer recognizes that it is there. The pc slots are also fully functional as far as I can tell showing up in the hardware profile and also having interrupt assignments. The network card is also present in the /etc/module.conf and nothing there seems to be out of the ordinary.
Needless to say Eth0 wont activate once in the OS though the hardware is present. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix the problem?

services pcmcia restart after boot up would fix the problem. You have to invert the bootup order for pcmcia and network. Check this out:
