wpa-supplicant.conf Question

I am using Gentoo Linux (a 2.6.9-rc1-mm4 Kernel) system with a Netgear 
WG511 Prism54 card.

I currently have a Cisco AP1230 that runs an 802.1x SSID with a CSACS 
Radius server (PEAP). The Windows XP stations use the MS Zero Wireless 
configuration with WPA/MSChapv2 authentication, with I assume dynamic WEP 
as we don't enter one on the client.

I'd like to emulate this with the Linux side. I have gotten my card to 
attach to a No WEP, no Protection SSID on the same AP, but I am not 
getting anywhere with the WPA-Supplicant.

My first hope is to eliminate the configuration of the WPA stuff so I can 
focus on perhaps driver issues?

Has anyone used the WPA-Supplicant to connect in this way that can tell me 
what options you used in the conf file? Or does my configuration with teh 
Netgear card toss up any red flags using the prism54 software rather than 
an NDIS wrapper?

Any advice is appreciated.
