[vox-tech] notebook wireless refinement question

New to Linux so pardon if this is not not clearly asked......but here goes....
I have Slackware running on a Toshiba notebook.
It has a miniPCI wireless card.
I've figured out how to connect to my home wireless router by running a script

iwconfig eth1 essid name key [1] XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX
dhcpcd eth1

Now when I turn on the notebook at home I'd like to have the start up recognize the essid name and run this script and just connect or is there a better way such as the rc.wireless.conf? Seems like I should be able to look for this essid first then if it does not exist go to say Moobilenet then look for an unsecured access point.
