 Well, I'm not TOO bad at compiling, so long as I don't have to go
dependency hunting for too much.  Maybe I can give you a hand with that
"howto."  I need the headers and make and GCC anyway, since I'm planning on
eventually self-tweaking a kernel. :)

I am also very very interested in getting WPA working on Ubuntu. My
home network is also WPA based with no desire to go to WEP. I live in
an appartment building with at lease 2-3 other wireless networks active
and reachable and would rather use WPA. I'm really looking foward to
your tutorial. Please keep me informed.
