Automatically switch to different wireless network?

I am running Mandrakelinux 10 on an IBM Thinkpad T40p with the MADwifi wireless drivers. I commonly use my wireless networking at 2 different locations that use differnet ESSID's. For some reason, when I go to one of the locations and boot up, the ath0 connection fails during boot and I have to rmmod my MADwifi modules and modprobe them again, then I have to iwconfig ath0 for the new location. I am wondering if there is a way that I can edit one of the init scripts somewhere so that it can auomatically detect the appropriate network at boot? I have searched on the web for wireless profiles linux and not much comes up that us useful to me. Any help is appreciated.
