dhcpcd wlan0 initialization

I have ndiswrapper configured for my Linksys card in Gentoo 2.6.8. I couldn't get on the net but after reading posts here realized that I had to dhcpcd wlan0 and all now works OK. What config file do I put this in so that it starts correctly on bootup?

The rc.local file (not sure there's one in gentoo) is made for user custom commands at boot.
