installing and WaveLAN

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to configure WaveLAN cards as standard
ethernet cards in the installer. I would imagine most wireless networks
(mine included) utilize closed networks and WEP encryption. Configuring
the card at install time is worthless without being able to enter these
On a related note, it appears that cardctl is ignoring wireless.opts. I
have to use iwconfig to set my ESSID as changes to wireless.opts don't take
effect on network restart.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. set up network
The 3/10 updates fix the wireless.opts problem. Will I be able to configure
wavelan at install time?
Give it a try with Red Hat Linux 7.1 and please reopen if the problem persists.
