WPA_supplicant from

I've just recently gotten started on RH9 and I have everything updated except I need help with wireless networking. I had TKIP setup on my network but now I cannot figure out how to setup WPA on my RH9. I'm typing this right now so my wireless works without WPA. I downloaded WPA_supplicant off and I'm looking for instructions on how to install this. I've installed libdnet also. The WPA supplicant doesnt let me do ./wpa_supplicant command so i figure I installed this wrong. Any help installing this would be great!
Thanks in advance.

WOO HOO! I got WPA working with Linuxant driver. Thanks to Linuxant for helping me install the driver but no thanks for not helping me out with WPA installation. I finally figured out the problem... Thanks TheHundredThrone! He helped me solve my problem I was having. The problem was I was tryin to untar files on a fat32 mounted partition when I need to be doing it on Ext3. I was able to follow the instructions from another website posted on here some where and I got TKIP installed successfully.
I'm posting this on my secure wireless network
