Ndiswrapper does not start during boot/network. Requires manual starts?

I have a Gateway laptop that has a topdog
wireless chip, and have sucessfully got wireless
to work.

However, for some reason, the wireless device
does not start during bootup, ntp fails to synchronize
as a clue.

However, once up, I can log in as a user, I have to
open a gnome terminal and issue the following

# depmod -a
# modprobe ndiswrapper

What I'd like to ask, is this normally how ndiswrapper
works?  Is it possible to get ndiswrapper to start
as it boots? I have saved wireless connection into
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts but this does not seem
to work because ndiswrapper is not activated first?

Any advice?
