As long as you have a wireless card that supports WPA, and a driver that
reports the correct capability values to NetworkManager, then yes it
works.  At this time, the following drivers are known to support WPA and
NetworkManager with varying reliability:

ipw2100 (fully supports)
hostap (fully supports)
ipw2200 (supports, but requires enc_capa patch scheduled for 2.6.17)
madwifi (supports, but recent snapshots are _very_ sketchy)
bcm43xx (supports, but driver is somewhat sketchy)

I've personally tested with madwifi (snapshot from late Jan) and ipw2100
against a Linksys WRT54G and an Airport Extreme.
