good news: I am now on wpa wifi without having to run any commands.
good job to those that did the work to make that happen.
I think some cleanup needs to be done. I am still finding most of the
docs have "Network-manager 0.6.1 will land into official Dapper
repository soon (today?)
and not so much "do this, put your key here."
If I was a bit more on top of what was going on I would do it myself.
If someone else can do the editing, I will run through the resulting
instructions on a clean dapper install.
one thing I noticed: the docs all seem to want me to edit
/etc/network/interfaces to remove the references to the wireless nic. I
think you can use the GUI: system/administration/Networking, select the
nic, Properties, uncheck "Enable..." - that seems to be what network
manager needs. which seems very odd.
