Completely disable buildt-in WLAN

Is there a quick and dirty line I can maybe  just put into a boot-time file
that will totally disable the internal WLAN card on the XO 1, 1.5 and 1.75
every time I boot until I manually remove that line?  I dont want to
disable wireless networking, just the internal card.  I want to test a
series of USB 802.11N 5Ghz adapters and would like them to be the only
active network adapter.  I have a couple of versions of Atheros based
sticks  (with new firmware) from ThinkPenguin that are working very nicely
on both my F17 and Ubuntu boxes, but those machines dont have any built-in
wireless.   I thought before I'd try them on XO build 12.1.0 (on all
architectures),  that maybe someone would have a quick hack so that I can
avoid testing on a moving target :-)
