if you have a CardBUS (32-bit PCMCIA) wireless device, the is the normal 
behavior that the 'pcmcia' service must be started before the 
'driverloader' service. The 'pcmcia' service will make your wireless 
device available in the output of the 'lspci' command so when the 
DriverLoader module is inserted into the kernel, the module will be able 
to find the wireless device. As you noticed, the 'driverloader' service 
does insert the DriverLoader module in the kernel.
