MN-520 wireless card not detected after reboot....

Hi everyone. I've been working sporadically on this problem for about 3 days which is exactly as long as I've had linux on my system. :-) Basically, this is the deal:

I'm running Fedora Core 2. I had to work to get my Microsoft MN-520 wireless pcmcia card to work on my machine, which I did. Problem is, upon reboot, the system tries looking for the card before pcmcia starts. So, basically, what ends up happening is that the card is not detected, because pcmcia hasn't been activated (yet).

Is there an easy fix for this problem? I mean, I COULD manually deactivate the card, and then reinstall it whenever I need it, but obviously, that isn't really what I prefer to do.

Is there a way to start pcmcia before the system starts looking for my network adapters?

Thanks in advance!
