ndiswrapper isn't exactly built around kernel standards since its such a goof. It might work to put the command line arguments in /etc/modules.conf, something like:

alias eth1 ndiswrapper
options blah blah blah blah (all the arguments to the ndiswrapper load)

OR...

Just cheat. All the commands you normally use to force load ndiswrapper, just can be put in /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc.local

Or really, post back your distro and I'll tell you which file it is that is the rc.local-alike, Debian, Mandrake, SuSe, Fedora, Gentoo, and Slackware all put them in different places. Its really important to fill in that Distro spot on your profile

Cheers,

Yep, Mandy has an /etc/rc.d/rc.local or at least did the last time I checked. You can put into that file all of the command line stuff, one line at a time. Its the last init file to get run on boot, so its just as if you typed in all the commands by hand right after login.

Cheers,
