[TriLUG] Tuning wireless configuration

So I've gotten my old thinkpad up and running on FC3 with a wifi card,
and even WPA using wpa-supplicant.
The only glitch is that if I boot the machine with the wireless card
already installed it doesn't bring up the interface. I either need to
manually pull the card and re-insert it to get hotplug to bring it up,
or manually invoke ifup ath0.
It used to bring kudzu up when I booted and ask me if I wanted to
configure the card, which I didn't. This was annoying so I disabled
running kudzu as a service.
I think I need to have an init script which does an ifup ath0, which
should work if the card is installed. Or is there a better way to do
