I have done some more experimenting and think I have found the solution
to my problem at least.

There seems to be some sort of conflict perhaps between the order it
initialises ath0 and loads pcmcia.  If I dont load pcmcia at boot, then
the wireless card comes straight up without oopsing.

Stop pcmcia-cs from starting on boot (system-config-services) and put
the following into /etc/rc.modules

#!/bin/bash
/sbin/modprobe yenta_socket
/sbin/modprobe ds

chmod +x /etc/rc.modules

I have a ifcfg.ath0 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ which brings
up my wireless network on boot.
