wirless login script

I have a login script for a wireless network that I have to run every time I insert my wireless card. I would like to run this script automatically when I insert the card. Does anyone know how to do this? I running debian (the unstable verision). All my configuration scripts are in /etc/pcmcia

couldn't you put it in your intd.d? not sure on debian, since i'm using red hat and you can edit a line in rc.local to make a script or process run during boot up.

I want the script to run when I insert the network card instead of on startup since I rarely reboot the computer.
