[Dshield] Wireless networks and corporate Lans

I have not yet used wireless myself, but am curious about the following
A laptop is connected to a corporate LAN via ethernet or a docking
station. The laptop also has a wireless card installed. A public
wireless access point is within range. Will the laptop connect both
interfaces? What will be the default route? Chances are the laptop
will be running Win2K.
What are the vulnerabilities? Can the laptop be attacked from the
wireless port and therefore access data on the corporate LAN?
Or am I being too paranoid?
Thanks in advance for any response,
