hot/cold plugging a Belkin F5D7010

I finally got my Belkin F5D7010 working. Had to use ndiswrapper 0.8, 0.10 caused kernel hang. I can get it on the network by going through
<plug it in>
modprobe ndiswrapper
iwconfig <options>
ifconfig <options>
route <options>

But, how do I get it to come up at boot, cold plug, and hot plug? Plugging the card in and running 'cardctl ident' lists the card with manfid = 0x02d0, 0x0417. And messages log file lists
Kernel: cs: cb_alloc(bus 6): vendor 0x14e4, device 0x4320
cardmgr[76]: socket 1: Cardbus hotplug device

So, it is getting recognized. But, why does the id in the log differ from cardctl response?

All docs I can find say to modify the cardbus scripts to load the driver etc. But, none say exactly what needs to go where. They assume you are an expert already.

So, can some kind soul help me?

did you get any further with this? I have a Realtek 8180 Card working with ndiswrapper + wpa_supplicant and would like to hotplug it too. For now I wrote a wlan start/stop skript which works pretty good, but hotplugging the card would be much smarter ...
I read the hotplug docu but can't really figure out what to do. Also tried to add the manfid of the card to /etc/pcmcia/config and bind it to ndiswrapper, but when I insert the card nothing happens :/

so if you have had any luck, please let me know ...
