mounting compact flash cards at startup

My computer has a compact flash card that I would like to have mounted
during the system startup.  I've placed this line in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hde1	/mnt/cf	auto	defaults	0	0

The drive doesn't mount on system startup, but it will once I've logged
in with 'mount -a'.  This hardware uses PCMCIA services, which may not
start until after /etc/fstab is processed.  The drive is also dependant
on the module ide-cs which I have set to load via /etc/modules.  What do
I need to do to make this fully automatic?
