Unhappy no /etc/init.d/pcmcia and WiFi card not detected by iwconfig

Toshiba Satellite A15-S127
Celeron Processor / 768 MB RAM / 30 GB HDD

Fedora Core 6 Kernel 2.6 i686

I am trying to get my Linksys WPC54G card working on my laptop, I do not see the kernel bringing up any PCMCIA service, I isntalled pccardctl and ndiswrapper but I cannot find /etc/init.d/pcmcia or anything related to pcmcia in /etc/rc.5/, I get my device listed when I do lspci -v but not when I do iwconfig although ndiswrapper recognizes my driver and detects my hardware.

I would appreciate any tips or pointers on why I do not have /etc/init.d/pcmcia, what's the impact of that on the iwconfig command and what's missing in my configuration to make my card work!?

Thanks a lot in advance!
