This is the problem -- it occurs before any card driver is loaded.

Try updating your PCMCIA code.  (Did 3.1.22 really ship with RH7.3?)

Yes.  It did.  I can confirm this based on my RH7.3 system.

Question:  Before building and installing the pcmcia-cs-3.2.3.tar.gz package, 
should the RH rpm be erased?  The PCMCIA-HOWTO does not address this
