No I used my wired as the primary.  I couldn't figure out how to use the 
wireless as my primary.  My access point is WPA and the ubuntu 
installation/configuration screen only talked about WEP.  Where you able to 
do WPA during the install?  If so, how?

Actually, it's working now.  I'm configuring eth2 with wpa_supplicant.  

The weird thing doesn't work right after booting, about 1 min after boot my 
network starts to work.

Also I'm not sure about the /etc/network/interfaces should I be using the 
hotplug stanzas or just setting the eth2 to "auto".  I'm going to play around 
with this part.
