Automaticly Run Commands at boot?

Let me clarify this a bit, in hopes that someone may post here.

Suse 9.1's NIC configuration utility will not load the correct drivers for my NIC and will not allow it to communicate with my access point. After some research, I found out that I should use the MadWifi drivers instead, which solved my problem. Now, everytime I log in, I have to go through this long, ardouse process of typing things in by hand to bring my NIC up and type in the WEP etc. etc. I just want to find a way to have these things run automaticly for me so I dont have to do this every time I log in. I know it is possible, I just don't know how to do it yet.

Also, I want to increase the speed of my wireless transmission, because it only runs around 36 mbps when I get 108mbps in Windows.

Any help on either of those two problems would be apreciated.
