Wireless Networking Documentation for Mandrake 10?

Hi I'm loading drivers for my wireless connection using ndiswrapper and everything has gone fine thus far, however after setting the wlan0 settings the documentation for ndiswrapper says to consult the documentation specific to my distro for further instructions on how to set up the wireless network but mandrake's user manual doesn't have anything on setting up the wireless connection, is there any such doc available? Thanks.

I was using the console since ndiswrapper never showed under the list of drivers. However I have gotten my connection working since that post but now my problem is saving it. Every time I reboot I jave to enter the 26 digit hex key and run ficonfig eth0 down ifconfig wlan0 up and then this dhcpcd command, anyone know how to automate this?
