Use a init script and start wpa_supplicant
from a runlevel with S and K softlinks
I use mandrake, it uses some redhat tools to control
"service" and "chkconfig"
"service" for manual start and restart
"chkconfig" to control automatic start in runlevels
if your system uses full runlevels then you
have a /etc/rc.d and a /etc/rc.d/init.d
check them out
whats in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ and starts with an S gets
started in runlevel 3 and
whats in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/ and starts whit an K gets
killed in runlevel 5
the number after S or K controls what you are looking

Best Regards
