automatically turn off eth0 when wireless eth1 is in

well i went and got wireless capabilities today. got a netgear hotspot and a netgear wg511 pc card. i got wireless to work with the linuxant driveloader and am posting this right now unplugged. right now my wired ethernet device is eth0 and the wg511 is eth1. problem is both get loaded at boot up even if the ethernet cable is unplugged from my nic card. i guess what i'm trying to figure out is, does anyone know a way where if the wg511 card is in at boot up, that eth0 will be deactivated since the wireless won't work as long as eth0 is activated?

thanks for any responses and help.
