will get a [FAILED] message indicating that eth0 initialization is
being delayed, but this is not reason for concern. later, when pcmcia
starts up, it should bring eth0 up along with it, if you have
configured it correctly.
i don't quite understand the logic behind why these services are set up
that way, but i've read many a posting on comp.os.linux.portable by the
maintainer of the PCMCIA-SERVICES package insisting that networking
*should* start up before pcmcia. i have it set up that way on my
redhat 6.0 system and it works fine. if you're tired of the [FAILED]
message on boot, though, you can set ONBOOT="no" in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to stop the network scripts
from attempting to bring it up.
