I am trying to set up a machine with a static ip address.   I have other 
examples of how to set up static ip addresses and know what needs to go 
into the /etc/network/interfaces file.  The part that I am fuzzy on is 
how to bring up the connection up at boot.  The wireless network is 
secure.  I know how to configure the connection with the 'iwconfig' 
command but I am not sure where to put a script that sets it up.  So the 
question is where do I put the command to configure the wireless, and do 
I just set up /etc/network/interfaces like I would for a static wired ip 
Just in case it matters that wireless adapter is a RTL-8185.  It was 
properly detected by a fresh install of mythbuntu 8.10 beta. 


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
