ndis on startup

I've got a encore enlwi-g pci wireless network card
that has a marvel chipset that is not supported by the
current drivers. The ndis driver will run the card
just fine. But if I try to load the ndis driver from
loader.conf the card errors out and cannot be
recovered until you reboot the computer. Unloading the
driver and reloading will not work. Loading the driver
after the computer is up seems to be the only option. 

In the loader.conf I have the following.

error msg
Oct 23 17:57:51 lame kernel: pci0: <network, ethernet>

Oct 23 17:57:51 lame kernel: ndis0: <IEEE 802.11g

Oct 23 17:57:52 lame kernel: ndis0: init handler

attach returned 6

Is there a way to script the load on start after
everything is running?
