And if I do install wicd to use in Xmonad, will that replace whatever app is currently running in Xubuntu?  Thanks.

I actually just tried wicd and it sucked.  Hard.  Never had this issue with any other distro.  I get ~75-83% signal on my kitchen table with the network manager.  Wicd gave me ~7-12% and failed to obtain an IP address the three times I tried.
