Ok, that's a point, but before you use the a automatism like this you
would test the components, i think. And if it has happend, you could use
the interactive startup of the bootup script and make shure, that the
pcmcia services are not loaded ... normaly not a big thing

You mean something like the 'ndiswrapper' program that is used to add,
list and remove the windows drivers, but as a deamon? This program could
check, if it has a driver for the inserted hardware and load (if needed)
the ndiswrapper module or could add a windows driver to a allready
running ndiswrapper module (like loadndisdriver seems to do it).

Me, too. But it was my first thought to make it over this way ...
