Awesome :-)

But, installing the QT and MinGW stuff (>30MB) is a pain for ordinary 
users. Would it be possible to avoid this?

One other thing: I can't get wpa_supplicant to see a network if I haven't 
already added it as an SSID in the Windows wireless configuration. Am I 
doing something wrong?

best regards, josh.
