How do I get hostap_pci driver to load/run at boot time?

I have a RedHat 7.3 system with a DLink 520 PCI card that refuses to start the Released 9/12 driver from system startup. After the system starts I login and use modprobe or give the the command ifconfig wlan0, this causes the driver to load and run. I have the alias wlan0 hostap_pci in the modules.conf file but nothing else. Once the hostap_pci driver loads it runs fine. I know I have a configuration problem I just don't what the driver is looking for at boot time to cause it to load and run. I have looked with lsmod and driver is definitely not loading. I need the driver to load at boot time, any ideas?

Thanks Doug
