It does happen a lot. What I would do would be to use a start-up script that runs at the end of the boot sequence and loads ndiswrapper and runs ifup. Basically the script just needs those two commands in it and most (all?) linux distros have a script that is intended for users to add things like this. In Slackware it is called rc.local, but I'm not entirely sure how Mandrake handles this.
