I finally figured out howto make dhcp actually work here.

1.  You must use the actual IP of the wap11 in the ifcfg-wlan0's
IPADDR= statement.  Otherwise the request for dhcp never gets off the 
laptop and thence to the subnet for service!

2. Once thats done, the dhcpd server can apparently run on any box on 
the subnet.

However, this brings up the question of how does one determine this AP 
address when out in the puckerbrush connecting to some motels wifi?

Is this something that an 'iwlist scanner' can find?

This is obviously something that all the old hands know so well they 
forget to ask the obvious questions of a newbie.

Can someone recommend a url, or a good book that teaches all this stuff?

Cheers, Gene
