hello, i'm experimenting with the x window system and twm and i was wondering how do you connect to a wireless network in the terminal emulator, i need to get some small programs via apt-get and i can't do that if i cant connect, also, my ubuntu wont really start up, so i'm gonna try to make due with x from the linux terminal, i've made everything else work fine from x and sucsessfully started twm, but i'm still confused, also i've forgotten the x configuration file where it tells x what to start like:
xterm -geometry +0+0.

If anyone can help me here, i would REALLY appreciate it!

Warm regards,

This should cover just about any wireless connection situation you might encounter.

didn't you write a decent samba tutorial a ways back? I can't seem to find that either -- and I am serious about this one!
