In the network config utility do you have the pcmcia card marked to run
at boot time?  

Probably an unrelated issue but I found that if you mark such an
interface to run at boot time that it would not.  BUT if you uncheck
that option the card would start up as expected when the pcmcia services
start.  (always seemed odd that the pcmcia services start after
networking services when your network card is a pcmcia card ....)
