wireless card not probed during boot

I have a Toshiba 1110 laptop running FreeBSD 5.2-whatever and a D-Link 
DWL-AG650 cardbus card.

Once FreeBSD has booted, inserting the card works and I can configure 
ath0 as required.  The problem is that FreeBSD does not see the card 
during the boot process.  If I boot with the card inserted, nothing 
appears when it is removed, but it properly detects when reinserted.

Is there any way I can get the card to be probed without manual physical 
intervention during a reboot, etc.?
