Auto startup ndiswrapper

Have finally got my wi-fi i-net up and running.

Been reading the install file from ndiswrapper, to make this auto upstart. but it does 'nt startup.

Always have to do this manually, using suse 9.0 Pro and ndiswrapper 0.3 on 2.4.166 Athlon suse kernel.
Could some explain this a bit further

I got it working but probably not the way intended. I say this cause I get a buncha errors at boot, but it works!
cd /etc/init.d/
cp net.eth0 net.wlan0
edit net.wlan0 and add these lines at the top

'modprobe ndiswrapper'
'/usr/sbin/loadndisdriver 8086 1043 /lib/windrivers/w70n51.sys /lib/windrivers/w70n51.inf'

that's for my centrino wireless card, the dirs will be the same for other cards but the .sys,.inf and the two numbers may be different, follow the install file in finding these numbers urself.
