Description of Problem:

The /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia script uses insmod if the /lib/modules/
{kernelversion}/pcmcia directory exists.  This prevents any module dependencies 
from being satisfied by modprobe.  Simply removing the /lib/modules/
{kernelversion}/pcmcia directory causes the rc script to revert to using 
modprobe instead of insmod, solving the problem.

This may only occur with custom built kernel where one of the pcmcia drivers 
depends on another module.  It's also quite possible that this scenario could 
occur in a Red Hat supplied kernel.  It's probably best to use modprobe at all 
times if possible.
