Has anyone figured out how to do WPA/RADIUS authentication on a laptop with
a wireless connection? WPA appears to need to authenticate before the Novell
client loads, but on a std XP install the Novell client is the first login

Chicken and egg. You can't login to the Netware system until you have a
valid wireless connection to the server, but you can't get a wireless
connection to the server until the WPA authentication happens....and you
can't get WPA authentication (AFAIK) until you get past the Netware
