Wireless next to normal LAN

got some problem to set up my wireless card next to my ethernet card.
Okay: It's less a problem more that I dont know, how this works. I wanna
set up both at the same time. But - the box is a laptop - when I plug
off my network cable the wireless card shall do the work.
So my questions:
- How do I set up two gateway interfaces?
- How do I set up my wireless card at startup?
(created a ifconfig.eth2 for it, but which settings does it take and
what about the settings iwconfig would handle)
-> How can I define the ESSID at startup?
-> Is there a way to define alternative ESSID if one is not available?
(dont wanna to tell my box: "Connect to everything thats possible!")
That's all at the moment.
Ah, I wanna mention: I have got no problem to set the card up manually.
Drivers, wireless_tools and hotplug are working fine, so do my cards. I
really wanna only solutions for my problems described here, not who to
set up my cards.
Thanks for your help,
