The card *should* activate on boot when pcmcia services are started.
The network config for eth0 *should NOT* activate on boot.
In other words, under the network config where you define the IP
address, etc. you should tell it to not activate at boot and save that.
Then check the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and
verify it contains a line "ONBOOT=no". If it says "ONBOOT=yes" change
that to "ONBOOT=no".
Now verify that pcmcia and network services are set to activate on boot.
"# chkconfig --list pcmcia" should return something like
pcmcia 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
and "# chkconfig --list network" should return something like
network 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
With this config it will activate the network services, but the eth0
interface will not be started. Then when the pcmcia service is started
it will activate that interface as it configures the card and you should
be up and running.
