OK, since you're well on your way to being Another Happy Slacker, the official way to do this is through a script. You can enter the commands into your /etc/rc.d/rc.local or you can set up a separate file. I wrote an explanation of how I do this in this thread

I wouldn't worry too much about the SSID broadcast. Turning off the broadcast doesnt' really increase your security all that much.

Two reinstalls later.. I **wondered** why linux was sooooooooooooooooo slow.
I then found my swap file was 0 bytes large..
I had forgotten to make a linus swap file..


It works 1000% better with 600MB swap file!!

And I am back on with linux and the buffalo card..
