Wireless association w/AP from command line, Fedora 9

I have a Fedora 9 live USB key working great. Although this is the KDE version, I usually boot only to runlevel 3 (command line).

Although I can get the onboard wireless nic to associated with different AP's great using the gui, I can't figure out how to do the same from the command line.

I've read lots of contradictory opinions...but I have a feeling I just need to configure my AP's settings in either wpa_supplicant.conf or ifcfg-wlan0

Can someone give me some direction on how to set this up?

Yes you need to create a wpa_supplicant.conf for YOUR config and then start the wpa_supplicant service. The rest (bringing up the interface and attempting the association) from system-config-network. Then "ifup eth1" *should* work from the command line - or else start the network service in run level3.

I have a page that covers setting up wpa_supplicant.conf--mostly just quotes from other people's howtos.
