There must be something like ONBOOT in the config files.
In redhat based systems it would be in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (for example)
in this file ONBOOT=YES should do it.


But 1st of all why ndiswrapper for IPW2000 card??
and 2nd within the Network Settings GUI it should be also possible to enable the card on boot.
