starting wireless connection on boot



Hello, I'm a newbie.

I've got wireless working on my Debian, but I have to log in as admin
to start it. I'd like to know how I can get it to load on bootup.

I've got a Linksys WPC54G card. I'm using ndiswrapper to run my driver.

ndiswrapper loads up normally on boot.

Currently, to get my network up, I have to
  su
  iwconfig wlan0 key xxxxxxxxxx essid my-network
  dhclient

Then I get my connection.

I've tried putting some iwconfig stuff in both /etc/network/interfaces
and etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts, but nothing seems to happen. What should
I do to get this loading during boot, and how can I test what's going
on?

thanks,
martin
