Networking at boot/in terminals

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi, I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 not too long ago now, and I'm getting annoyed by how many hoops I have to jump through to do simple stuff, like change the background on GDM. Well, here's a new one. In Ubuntu 9.04, I modified /etc/network/interfaces to have wpa_supplicant take care of my wireless networking at boot. That way, I'd have networking in all of my terminals, and all of my applets that relied on networking (i.e. giplet) wouldn't be screwy when I first logged in (since NetworkManager hadn't established a connection yet.) I tried the same method in Ubuntu 9.10, only to find out that something must have been changed, because I can't seem to get it to work anymore. So, how would I go about getting my wireless network configured at boot so I can use it in my terminals? Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
