My laptop is happy running Ubuntu 7.04 over a WPA2 encrypted wireless 
network.  I don't remember if I had to install this package manually or 
if it was automatically, but you'll need the wpasupplicant package (sudo 
aptitude install wpasupplicant ).  (if this package isn't on the cd-rom 
- honestly, I don't remember - you'll need a WEP or Ethernet connection 
to Internet to proceed to the installation, then you can connect to you 
WPA network).

I hope this helps...
