Wireless setup

Hi

I'm new to wireless and am trying to set it up on LFS6.4 using the 
setup in BLFS under 
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/WirelessTools.
Two problems:

The wireless script provided at 
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/~jciccone/wireless won't load 
wpa_supplicant. The command wpa_supplicant -Bw 
-c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i${1} is not being run.  I can input 
this by hand after booting and its fine , but it will not run from 
the script.

The second problem involves dhcpcd.   I can bring up my connection 
to the router by hand with 'dhcpcd wlan0'(after running 
supplicant), but if I run it from its script at boot time I get no 
connection.  I have to delete its pid and then input by hand again. 
   I've attached some of the files for viewing can someone help me 
to get online from bootup automatically.

thanks

MAC
