Delaying bridge creation

Hi all,

I know that strictly speaking this is not a hostap question, but perhaps somebody can help me out all the same.

I just replaced the WMP11 in my hostap box with a ReliaWave card from Demarctech in one of the PCMCIA-PCI bridges that they sell. I've got everything working now, but because of the delay in starting the PCMCIA card, my bridge creation fails.

I have my ifcfg-XXX scripts named ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-wlan0, and ifcfg-zbr0. This used to be sufficient to make sure that the bridge was created last. Any suggestions on where I can place a hook to create the bridge only after the wlan0 interface is completely up? I'm not too terribly familiar with PCMCIA services on Linux. I'm running Redhat 7.3.
